Talking about Men's Mental Health 

In this podcast, we discuss the topic of men’s mental health with Simon from Andy's Man Club, a men's suicide prevention charity offering free, peer-to-peer support groups. We discuss the benefits of attending support groups for men such as having a dedicated, safe, non-judgemental space to open up conversations about mental health and share experiences. We also touch upon the barriers and challenges men can face when speaking about mental health and accessing support and think about how men can be better supported to start these conversations.
