Story

Menfulness is a multi-award winning local men's mental health charity based in York. The charity aims to break the stigma behind men's mental health and reduce suicide amongst men by delivering proactive events and activities that facilitate supportive conversations amongst like minded men with lived experience, and get blokes talking. These events range from talk groups, 5-a-side football, retro games nights, dad/daughter hair schools, walk and talks and much more!

When men don't talk this can lead to them hitting crisis point, and with GP's and the NHS signposting to Menfulness, we wanted to remove all barriers to men getting help, so we provide life changing counselling through Serendipity Counselling - a fully funded cycle of 6 sessions, often available within 48hrs. We have funded over 1000 hours of counselling which we feedback suggests has saved lives.

We bring men together to socialise, exercise, enjoy themselves, talk and let off steam in a non-judging, friendly and supportive environment. These are all essential for wellbeing and health, both physical and mental. A volunteer led organisation, all the money donated or pledged is directly benefitting Mens mental health. Whether managing ongoing mental health issues, preventing recurrence or just proactively promoting you own mental health and well being we will have an activity or activities which suit you. Most activities are non formal in terms of the support they offer, however we have incredible links with a local Counselling organisation, Serendipity for more formal help and intervention. We can have Men into professional counselling with 7 days.
