Men's Mental Health

There is an intense pressure on Men today, to be ‘perfect’.

 

In Body, Mind and Spirit. In their Jobs, Relationships, Marriage and Parenthood. With their Mates, Partners, bosses, work colleagues.
The list is endless. 


And sometimes, or maybe many times we fall, we break and we fail..... unable to cope.

In recent years, it has become clear to us, that a large proportion of men in our communities, are suffering from Mental health problems, loneliness and a need for comradeship, resulting sometimes in unhealthy thoughts, habits and all to often suicide.

 

Loneliness is not just prevalent in people (Men) who find themselves on their own. Loneliness is experienced in people who have busy lives with families, work and friends. 

The same can be said for people suffering with Mental Health problems. The masks we show every day, can hide a great deal of pain and sadness from the rest of the world.

 

The Man Shed is here to offer support.
