Content By: Sagar-Ouriaghli, I., Brown, J. S. L., Tailor, V., and Godfrey, E. (2020). Engaging male students with mental health support: a qualitative focus group study. BMC Public Health, 20 (1159), 1-14.  

Course Description: Problems such as anxiety and depression are common in university students. Symptom severity, as well as the number of students who report common mental health problems, has increased. The stigma associated with seeking help reduces students’ willingness to talk about their mental health concerns. Males are less likely to seek help for mental health difficulties compared to females. Male students also have more negative attitudes towards the use of psychological services. Five themes were identified and represent important considerations that can be used together with the existing literature for the development of more male-friendly help-seeking interventions that are suitable for students.    

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the potential approaches that are relevant to improving mental health help-seeking in male students and the methods examined in the article
  2. Analyze the five distinct themes that were identified in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas for future research

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Engaging male students with mental health support: a qualitative focus group study
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to negative attitudes held by male students coupled with the statistical findings from the accompanying article
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
