Belfast City Council to mark International Men’s Day again

In 2014, Belfast City Council held an event on International Men’s Day to raise awareness of the issues that affect men and boys and to celebrate their contribution to society


This year the Council will be holding an event again focusing on men’s health and wellbeing, including mental health and building emotional resilience. The event will be organised together with the Belfast Health Development Unit and the costs will be covered within existing revenue estimates and with support from the Public Health Agency.

This year it will be a morning (breakfast) event and will include a confidence building motivational speaker and a presentation on behalf of a local community based project, ‘Lads to Dads’. There will be health checks, including a skin scanner to assess sun damage, and lots of interactive activities such as yoga, specifically tailored for men. It is hoped that the event will attract local men from all walks of life across the city.

The minutes from the Council are here.

When more details are available we will post them on the events page.
