Men's Guide to Self Care

Self-care is simply the act of taking time to focus on yourself. You allocate certain time during each day, or even just weekly, to put your stressors on the back burner, with the goal of improving your mental health. The past year has been complete chaos, and as such, an increase and focus on mental health has taken center stage. Over one in three adults in the United States has reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder during the pandemic, which means practicing self-care in any capacity should become a priority.

Know Your Nuts: Men's Sexual Health Workshop
12:00 pm - 1:00pm
Join the Male Success Initiative, Health Education & Promotion, and The Student Health Center at Stanislaus State for this event that will go over ways in which men can routinely self check for healthy testicles. This virtual facilitation will be led by Dr. Sergio Mazon, from the Student Health Center.
Testicular self-exams (TSE) can help you check for things like cancer. Although testicular cancer is rare in teenage guys, overall it is the most common cancer in males between the ages of 15 and 35.
It's important to try to do a TSE every month so you can become familiar with the normal size and shape of your testicles, making it easier to tell if something feels different in the future.
