Mens Health Awareness Week

Men are known to be shy about expressing their health problems. Unlike women, they are far less likely to discuss their private issues over a cup of coffee with the girls.

Although the notorious ‘man flu’ may make this difficult to believe, ‘Men’s Health Week’ is a time to raise awareness for those who suffer with more than just a bad cold.

Often Mental Health is an issue overlooked in men, so this week is a perfect time to raise awareness and promote good health.  

People’s mental health is delicate and alters regularly due to all manors of things.

Mental wellbeing isn’t just about thinking positively. There are many different aspects in life that can get us down and make it hard to focus on day-to-day living. We are not always in control of what happens in our lives and this is scary! No wonder sometimes we go a little off track, and nobody is to blame.

As a society we need to learn to be more mindful of ourselves and learnt to read and understand our own bodies and minds; taking care of your mental health is just as important as physical health. Sometimes its as easy as having someone to talk to, or taking a little break from normal proceedings. Sometimes, it takes more and can have a larger effect on our lifestyle and we need bigger supports in place.

We offer mental health support groups for all different problems, or even if you just need a chat. Our friendly staff and volunteers are always there to help and encourage openness and comfort to those suffering with mental health problems.
