September is the international month of Prostate Cancer Awareness and in this episode, we reacquaint you with Men’s Health Psychologist Patrick Lumbroso (RIP) who we first introduced in Episode 4, in our first ‘’pop up’’ edition.
Patrick, who founded ‘’ManFocus Clinic’’ in Sydney Australia was passionate about providing quality rehabilitation and counseling service for men and their partners, especially those undergoing treatment for Prostate Cancer. Knowing the potential side effects of surgery – including erectile and urinary dysfunction – could greatly impact a man’s self-esteem, Patrick was earnest in his goals to address the big gaps seen in male mental health.
Patrick’s primary focus was in education and support for men experiencing any form of sexual dysfunction, and although he did not complete his PHD due to his premature passing, his work is founding and explores new frontiers in men’s health.
In 2017, Dr. Jo interviewed Patrick for over 3 hours and episode 50 is the first of 3 episodes bringing Patrick’s experience and desire to assist others to be better prepared and more proactive in their recovery. Knowing his death from a brain tumour was imminent, Patrick did not hold back. Brace yourself for this raw account…..
Patrick’s wife Donna and children, Joel and Rebecca, have agreed to share this body of work, that remains as relevant today as when it was recorded.
We thank them for their generosity.
