Presentations and discussions from “Men Enough!” conference now online

September 12, 2007

This conference, organised by the Men’s Health Forum Scotland, took place on Friday 11th May 2007 at Glasgow City Chambers. I had a White Ribbon Scotland stand there selling ribbons and distributing information. The event really helped me to meet a lot of excellent supportive people. Presentations and discussions from the day are now online and freely available to download.
