MAN SPROUTS PODCAST EPISODE 3
Welcome to episode 3 of the man sprouts podcast.
In this episode I explore the issue of being judgmental when it comes to mental health as it relates to us blokes. I introduce the 'N' of the MAN SPROUTS MAN-IFESTO and share an interview with Dave Minchella who works with male offenders in supporting them with mental health issues.
The interview might be a little challenging for you in terms of your judgment muscles but worth listening to and reflecting on.
