Men’s mental health was discussed at a campus event

Students play spike ball and water pong after discussing men's mental health.

The Florida State Mental Health Council (MHC) hosted an event last week on the intramural campus dedicated to men’s mental health.

Held last Thursday, November 9, the event was open to both men and women, but was mostly attended by men. The evening included a short talk by RENEW (Realizing Everyone’s Need for Emotional Wellness), a peer education and support service offered by FSU’s Counseling and Psychological Services.

RENEW shared stories gleaned from interviews with men that highlighted their common mental health issues.

Most reports are of men who ignore mental health throughout their lives and have no support from others to address it, only for their psychological isolation to create personal and interpersonal problems later in life.
