What works for you?

Do you hate your job?

That's the first question in #works4me, a new feature as part of the Forum's beatstress.uk service.

#works4me let's men talk about difficult situations they find themselves in and for the other men to make suggestions. Once again, it's totally anonymous. The Forum's beat stress team will read all the suggestions and post some of them online. New situations will be posted regularly.

A problem shared

Beat stress project manager Chris Stein said: 'You could say #works4me is based on the old saying that a problem shared is a problem reduced. The idea is that men can help each other out in an easy, anonymous and confidential way. You can say anything you want without getting any of the ridiculous advice or even abuse you sometimes see in other online settings.'

The easiest way to see how #works4me works is to visit the page.

I'm sure can we can all help Dave with his situation – after all, we've all had a job we don't like at some time or another. If you don't want to post this time, just sign up and we'll let you know when the next situation is online.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
