Men Actively Standing Together
Green Door Families have launched a new initiative to support men who are struggling with mental health problems, loneliness, isolation or domestic abuse. In England alone around 1 in 8 men suffer from common mental health issues such as anxiety or depression, and often men are reluctant to receive help or speak up about their feelings.
We felt passionate about this issue and along with the hub in Christchurch, have started running monthly breakfast meetings to provide a place of support with an open door policy whilst maintaining confidentiality.
MAST has a core team of 7 men who are trained as Community Connectors and support around 12 men who are struggling for various reasons, through friendship and activities.
