Keynote Panel with Dr Marlon Rollins
While men are less likely than women to seek treatment, does that mean they don’t need help? Our experts think Not. Men are far more likely to commit suicide than women. We have gathered a diverse panel of experts comprised of Men, Women, Non-Binary, and Gay. These Doctors and Therapists will explore the warning signs and offer suggestions on how to entice men into receiving much-needed help.
Masculine Symptoms can include Anger, Stress, Overwork, Addiction, and Feeling Hopeless and Suicidal. This will be an engaging talk for all.
