Men’s Health Matters Podcast with Phoebe Drioli-Phillips – “How men talk about anxiety”

Phoebe-cropNext up in our podcast series showcasing young researchers from the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health at the University of Adelaide, we hear from Ms Phoebe Drioli-Phillips PhD candidate on men seeking help for anxiety. Phiebe is based in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide and her supervisors are Professor Amanda Lecouteur and Dr Rebecca Feo.  What Phoebe hopes to achieve with her research is to get a deeper understanding of how men introduce and discuss and seek support for their own anxiety from peers in a naturalistic context, not in a health context, or a health care context necessarily.  This information is important and necessary to create more male friendly health services, and enhancing outcomes for men with anxiety.
