Self Care and Masculinity
What does self-care look like in 2020 for boys and young men? Is self-care being promoted as feminine, and if so, how is that affecting men's mental health? How can we promote self-care in a productive way for all folks?
On this episode, you'll hear from our Youth Council as they tackle questions related to the intersection of self-care and masculinity. Enjoy!
These are the kind of discussions we should be having with friends and family all the time! I’m so glad there is a podcast like this that uplifts youth voice while talking about such pervasive issues.
As a youth voice, I appreciate hearing other young speaking of change and social constructs in society that need to be broken down. It all starts with one conversation and these young voices are doing it. BEST PODCAST EVER!!
