After discussing the intro question (page 9, Personal Study Guide) with the men in your group, share that a 2012 survey conducted by Aviva USA and the Mayo clinic revealed the top five stressors for men. If you have a marker board, write the following on the board, but don’t put them in order. Allow group to guess the order, according to the survey. After group has had a chance to guess, write the percentages next to the stress factor. The numbers reflect what percentage of men rated this factor the number one stressor in their lives.
- Finances (34%)
- Family and Relationships (17%)
- Job Stability (12%)
- Pace of Life (10%)
- Health (8%)
Lead group to compare this list to their responses to the Introduction question.
We want to hear from you! What ideas do you have for getting into this topic with men’s groups?
