BetterYou has added its support to a recent initiative to encourage men to speak up about mental health.
The natural health company supported the first ever Mantality retreat, in Leeds, which encourages men to speak up about mental health issues and live more complete lives.
Mantality was launched in 2016 by Leeds Rhinos player, Stevie Ward, after struggling with depression following a series of injuries, and during the retreat, BetterYou provided attendees with a nutrient bundle of vitamins and minerals, to help boost mood and wellbeing.
Andrew Thomas, founder and Managing Director of BetterYou, commented: “It’s a great privilege to support #TheNewMantality initiative and challenge the stigma attached around mental health in men. Studies have shown that vitamin and mineral deficiencies, specifically those that are vitamin D and magnesium, can have a negative impact on our mood and overall wellbeing.
“One in five of us have low levels of vitamin D and around 70 per cent of us have low magnesium levels, so it’s important that we look after our bodies to nourish our minds.”
