our services and campaign.
MGEDT seeks to improve the service provision available to men is by providing workshops aimed at professionals working in many sectors including education, health and social care, mental health provision, counselling and many more.
Our training would also be suitable for students who are pursuing a career in mental health or have a specialist interest in eating disorders.
Our key workshop ‘Understanding Male Eating Disorders’ is delivered to professionals to encourage excellent professional practice by tackling the misconceptions surrounding eating disorders. We aim to give professionals a better understanding of eating disorders in men so professionals can become more responsive to men’s needs and recognise the barriers sufferers feel they face when approaching treatment and recovery.
The workshop will;
- Explore some of the myths & misconceptions often associated with male eating disorders.
- Look at eating disorders, definitions, contributing factors and other associated conditions.
- Provide an insight into the issues men face getting help and looking at real experiences from men who have suffered themselves.
- Examine the barriers men face in accessing services and looking at ways professionals and services can overcome these barriers to provide gender inclusive service provision.
The workshop is around 3 hours long and is both informative and interactive leaving ample opportunity to discuss the points raised in the workshop.
The trainers who run this workshop have extensive experience within the charity and our campaigns and an excellent understanding of service provision and the issue of eating disorders. They all have a mix of personal and professional experience in eating disorders that affect men and mental health.
