*Update* New date for Man Therapy Lunch & Learn will be announced soon!

*Update* - Unfortunately the June 21st date was cancelled but a new date will be announced soon! Stay tuned! 

Man Therapy is an interactive mental health campaign and web-based wellness tool targeting working age men (25-64) that employs humor to cut through stigma and tackle issues like depression, divorce and anxiety. The purpose of the Man Therapy campaign is to provide men approaching crisis, and their loved ones, a place to go and learn more about men's mental health, examine their own and consider a wide array of actions that will put them on the path to treatment and recovery. The message is that all men should be aware of their mental health, treat it like they would a broken leg and strive to get better.

The presenters will provide an overview of Man Therapy, provide examples of how it is being promoted and used both in Vermont and Maine, and discuss tips and applications for the promotion and use of Man Therapy in a primary care setting.
