Mens Mental Health Symposium

Despite an epidemic in mental distress, research has shown that men are much less likely to be diagnosed with mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.

Many feel that mental health issues are seen as a weakness and as a result are reluctant to talk about their problems, go to the GP or ask for help.

They are also more likely to use alcohol or other substances to help them cope with problems.

But what are the barriers to them accessing support and what does this mean for men in crisis?

Approximately three quarters of people who die by suicide in the UK are men.¹

Hosted by the Rapid Transformational Therapy Training School, this event will look at what the barriers are, how we can break them down, the consequences if we don’t – and will focus on six key themes:

• The prevalence of men’s mental health issues and the barriers to them accessing support

Additional challenges for BME and LGBTQ+ groups

• The strategies frontline organisations are using to tackle this issue and the challenges they face

• How Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is emerging as an intervention to support men’s mental health

Early intervention measures and how they can help young men tackle mental health issues and prevent suicide

• The worst case scenario – suicide and the ripple effect on families and society


Attendees will receive an Event Brochure and post event will also receive:

• Exclusive hypnotic audio recordings by world-renowned therapist and best-selling author Marisa Peer

• A range of supporting materials around working with male clients

About David O'Neill

David O’Neill was 28 when he died by suicide in February 2021. He was fast climbing through the ranks of the RTT Training School and was loved by all his colleagues. He had recently moved into a new home with his girlfriend and they were expecting their first child later in 2021. His parents were devoted to him, he was passionate about so many things, including Newcastle United Football Club, and yet he chose to end his life.

Everyone who knew him still asks themselves whether they could have done more and stopped this from happening? This event will shine a light on questions like these and begin to look at ways to encourage more men to share their struggles.

About the Rapid Transformational Therapy Training School

In 2015 Marisa Peer established the RTT Training School, headed up by Dr Sian Peer which has helped to train thousands of therapists globally and has recently added therapeutic coaching to its portfolio.

Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is a therapeutic approach that uses powerful techniques to provide people with the tools for change.

Developed by world-renowned therapist and best-selling author Marisa Peer, RTT draws elements of Gestalt, solution- focused, cognitive behavioural therapy and neuroplasticity alongside techniques such as hypnotherapy and mindfulness.

The personalised approach works with clients to help them reframe any negative beliefs – many of which they

have carried with them since childhood. Often these have been so deeply buried in their subconscious, they are not unaware of the past issues affecting them.

By giving the client the knowledge and power to shift the way they think about themselves and the world around them, they can approach life in a more positive way.


Our mission is to make RTT accessible to everyone via statutory services throughout the world to ensure as many people as possible can benefit from this powerful modality.

The RTT Method Anxiety Symposium was held in July 2021 and proved to be a global success with a sell-out audience numbering 1000.

Speakers included experts in the field of various therapeutic interventions with Dr Carol Ireland and Caroline van Diest discussing EMDR and CBT respectively alongside Marisa Peer, the founder of RTT, who gave a personal account of how she deals with anxiety.

We also heard about challenges and service provision from frontline charities:

A total of £18,000 was raised for these charities through ticket sales – additional donations are constantly being made as RTT students and graduates unable to attend the symposium can purchase the recordings.
