A new online training tool launched last week aims to improve the mental fitness of young Irish men and to encourage this often hard-to-reach group to seek help.
The WorkOut app which is free to access, is based around a series of brief online interventions called missions. Similar to the ‘Beating the Blues‘ program available in NI (in that both programs use the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy), this online training tool differs in that it can be accessed online without the need to first visit your GP.
WorkOut has been developed by the Inspire Ireland Foundation and the Men’s Health Forum Ireland with the support and backing of the Institute of Public Health, the Health Service Executive National Office for Suicide Prevention in the Republic of Ireland and the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety and the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland.
