Nyyti News 11/2022
Based on the statistics, a large part of boys and men are doing well and cope well in life. However, based on the needs assessment of our MiehenTila project and the experience gained from group work, a large number of men suffer from loneliness, lack of selfconfidence and pressure to perform, which weaken men's mental health and wellbeing.
Nyyti ry is involved Miltä susta tuntuu? (How do you feel?) campaign, which starts at the beginning of Men's Week on November 7, 2022. The campaign aims to spark an open discussion about the wellbeing of men and boys. The goal of the campaign, which is implemented with several different organisations and actors working for men's wellbeing, is to help men stop at their own feelings and experiences and to encourage us to ask the man close to us about his wellbeing.
In addition to the wellbeing of men and boys, in Nyyti's November, we will talk about how to cope in studies, the loneliness of students, and how someone close to a university student can support the student.
In November, when nature dies, i.e. settles into winter rest, it is also a perfect time to talk about environmental feelings and sadness as well as receive guidance on handling environmental anxiety.
