Are there any specific services for men with general mental health problems?

St Helens Mind run a support group called ‘Men Supporting Men’ in an enjoyable, safe and welcoming place to meet with others at the United Reformed Church. The group focuses on opportunities to socialise with others by having activities such as quizzes, discussions and film mornings.

CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) is about supporting men, particularly those aged 15-35. It’s about giving you a break, a way of getting things off your chest and sorting your head out. If you’re going through a tough time and live on Merseyside then they could help you get back to enjoying your life. They provide a helpline (0800 58 58 58) and a website full of information, blogs and stories on issues relating to depression and suicide.

Sound Merseyside is dedicated to raising awareness and providing support to young men in Merseyside with mental health problems. Their website contains information about common mental health problems, and Sound Merseyside also provide a range of projects to help improve the mental health of young men.

Sort out Stress is a similar website providing information and stories relating to men dealing with depression.
