YOUNG MEN'S PROGRAMMING

 

“Busting myths, breaking barriers”

At Planned Parenthood Toronto, we know there are a lot of things that stand in the way of guys going to the doctor.  Our Bust Tha’ Myth resource, developed out of a 2004 consultation with 41 young men and 20 service providers in Toronto, helps to identify myths that are barriers to guys accessing health services, and breaks them down.  Our workshops with young men bring us into the community, where we can talk about sex, healthy relationships, and masculinity.  We know that mental health, relationships, STIs, sex, and substance abuse are issues that young men worry about, and PPT Health Services aims to let guys know that seeing a doctor, nurse, or counsellor around these issues is a smart move. 

Through the Young Men’s Peer Project, supported by the MAC AIDS Fund in 2009-10, young men developed their leadership and facilitation skills, as well as knowledge about sexual health. They then used their skills and knowledge to deliver sexual health workshops to their peers and to develop the “It’s That Easy” campaign promoting condom use, HIV testing and STI testing.
