Self-Guided Courses

Mental health challenges can affect anyone - guys are no different

HeadsUpGuys’ Courses are designed to equip men with skills to:

  • Manage and regulate thoughts and emotions 
  • Navigate common life challenges 

These courses provide a deep-dive into key areas that men often struggle with, and work toward helping guys develop core life skills that help them steer around the inevitable bumps on the road of life. 

As with the rest of the content on HeadsUpGuys, courses are completely free, as we try to reach and help as many men as possible. 

“The other day, I caught myself getting pissed off and thought, what would HeadsUpGuys suggest I do? I took a few deep breaths and didn’t lose my cool. I calmly expressed my opinion, then got back to focusing on my day.”  – Micheal, 32

Courses also include interactive elements, with written sections and some quick questions to make sure you’re absorbing information as you go. 

Some courses also include a corresponding ‘Check’ or screening tool to help you track your progress before, during, and after completing a course. Opting-in to provide data for HeadsUpGuys research on men’s mental health is entirely optional.
