    Story

    The concept of ManHealth came out of a relationship between two men Michael and Paul. Both were suffering with depression. Depression was tearing their lives apart. Both men had been unable to discuss their condition with family or medical professionals and had closed themselves off from the world. Through regular daily meetings, telephone communications and then regular exercise Michael and Paul realised that the sharing of feelings and emotions and discussion of the issues around mental health made them feel better within themselves. The encouragement and comradery helped them on the road to getting well.

    ManHealth run peer support groups in and around County Durham and the North East of England. Peer support takes place when people with experience of depression support each other towards better wellbeing, as people of equal value and on a reciprocal basis, using their own lived experience as a tool for support. We know that peer support offered by someone who has experience of depression can help men. They will open up and discuss their issues around depression and start their path to recovery. It is not an easy thing to acknowledge that depression is tearing your life apart, and it takes strength to admit it and seek help. Depression is not a weakness;

    It affects 1 in 4 men and leads to many men taking their own lives.

    ●Suicides (76%) are by men and suicide is the biggest cause of death for men under 35.

    ●Over three quarters of people who kill themselves are men.

    ●73% of adults who ‘go missing’ are men.
