BRAND new men’s mental health group aims to be a great opportunity to socialise in a safe environment, where men know that they are amongst people with similar issues.

Like-minded Councillor Paul Stevens, Deputy Mayor of Hereford and Euan McPherson, Chief Executive of Services for Independent Living, have joined forces to set up a group where men of all ages can come together over a cuppa, a game of pool, maybe a kick about or perhaps a community project.

Councillor Stevens said “Men’s groups have been shown to be very effective at creating a space for men to feel safe when they have mental health issues. Hereford men deserve this opportunity and I hope people will come along and join myself and Euan”.

Euan and Councillor Stevens have some ideas about the general activities that people may enjoy but are interested to speak to attendees when the group is up and running to direct the group.

The first meeting of Hereford Men’s Mental Health will be on November 11th, 5.30pm to 7.30pm at the United In The Community building Victoria Park, Hereford HR1 1AW. No booking necessary and refreshments will be provided.
