Panos Vythoulkas, clinical psychologist and KeepingWell NCL Hub Senior Practitioner, talks in-depth with first-year trainee clinical psychologists Alex Tsefos and Titian Tam about how it feels to be a man working in caring professions. They discuss the impact on male healthcare workers’ emotional wellbeing, gendered stereotypes around mental health, and the importance of seeking help when you need it.
Drawing on their first-year placement in a London Home Treatment Team, Titian and Alex also share with Panos some of their personal and professional experiences of working in a caring profession, and some self-care tips.
