Dr Robin Howe, Incident Director for the Covid-19 Outbreak Response at Public Health Wales, said: “Today is International Men’s Day, which highlights positive role models and raises awareness to the well-being of men. This year, the theme is “Better Health for Men and Boys” and it encourages men to talk about things that bother them to normalize discussions about emotions. This is particularly important at this time, given the dire consequences the pandemic has on our mental health and well-being.
