Bank of Scotland event – Stamping out the Stigma: Men’s Mental Health

19th November 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


About this event

Around 1 in 8 men have a common mental health problem, however it is well documented that often men do not feel like they can come forward to discuss how they are feeling or seek support for a variety of reasons

This International Men’s Day, we will be hosting a discussion panel to raise awareness of mental health issues affecting men, and to support with removing any associated stigmas. This session is designed to bring the community together to have an open and honest conversation during these uncertain times.

You will hear from a range of panellists and our host who will openly share their personal experiences and expertise in this area to:

  • Break down barriers
  • Reduce poor job cultures and high stress environments within business/workplaces
  • Empower men to share their experiences and ask for help at the earliest possible stage
  • Highlight the part we can all play in reducing stigma and improve current poor statistics
  • Provide actionable steps to help reduce mental distress

This will be a 1 hour interactive discussion panel hosted by Martin Roberts who is the Mental Health Lead for Lloyds Bank and who has experienced the struggles that come with men’s mental health.

The session will be followed by a 30 minute open Q&A


  • Lee Richardson: Former Professional Footballer
  • Dan Rowe: Head of MenTalk2 Division at TalkOut (“To make it OK to not be OK”)
  • Michael Byrnes: Owner and Founder of Lived Experience Trauma support (LETs)
  • Willie Nicol: Contentment Life Coach
