ManHealth provides free peer support groups and a WebChat and Connect service across County Durham and Northumberland for men with depression and other mental health conditions.
We know that the intense emotional pain you can experience when depressed can distort your thinking so it becomes harder to see possible solutions to problems, or to connect with those who can offer support. Suicide might seem like the only way to make the pain stop. We also know that peer support offered by someone who has a lived experience of mental ill health can help men.
In 2020 ManHealth supported over 3500 men and provided over 7000 hours of free peer support.
ManHealth also provides training for Businesses, Schools and Colleges on health inequalities affecting men and boys. ManHealth campaigns to raise awareness about men’s health issues. ManHealth’s support indirectly benefits families’ employers, GPs, NHS and voluntary sector organisations.
