Men2 Launch a Success!
A positive evening, a lot of people turned up, and it was amazing to hear people’s stories...
DID YOU KNOW?
In the UK, the highest suicide rate was for men aged 45-49
In the UK, men are three times as likely to take their own lives than women
- Suicide is still the single biggest killer of young British men
Therapy Partners are attempting to change this! We launched our Men only support Group, Men2, on Thursday 19th September. The group was a resounding success, with the mayor of Maidstone in attendance to officially launch the group, and over 10 attendees, with more set to come next week.
The group focuses on what each individual would like to gain from attending and how we can work together to support each other and achieve this. We encourage any men who have experienced mental health issues or are facing or have faced challenges to attend, whether it be to share their stories, inspire others, or to get out of the house and socialise with like-minded people.
Future meetings will also include Educational, practical talks on subjects including relationships, addiction, mental health, domestic violence and self-esteem
Are you a man? Do you face daily struggles, drinking problems, relationship issues, mental health issues or just want to talk about life in general with a group of peers? JOIN US!
Every Thursday, 19:00 – 21:00, Maidstone Community Support Centre.
