We always think of him as “70s Big Mike” but Dr . Mike Battaglino is an educator for the Department of the Air Force, Air Force Veteran, Adjunct Professor and competitive Strongman. Throughout these varied endeavors, Mike has become passionate about raising awareness for mental health, particularly for men where help-seeking is often stigmatized. In addition to raising money and awareness for Movember each year, Mike also facilitates the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training course and Mental Health First Aid. 

We dive into the question of how to have the difficult discussions about mental health, Resilience Training, and how negative attitudes towards men’s emotions have actually undermined mental health.
