The Men’s Health Forum and Mind have been commissioned by the National Mental Health Development Unit (NMHDU) to write a guide on how to meet the mental health needs of men as a follow to Untold Problems: a review of the essential issues in the mental health of men and boys.
Untold Problems is currently scheduled for publication on the 24th February - this is later than the information given in some flyers and publicity.
The new practical follow-up guide will be published in the late summer. But before we write it, we want to know what you think about the issue. We also want your suggestions for what should be in the guide.
For example: Why do you think men are less likely to seek help? How do you think services could be made more male-friendly? What interventions do you think are most effective with men?
You can write as much or as little as you like. We promise to read and consider what you have to say.
You can comment anonymously or, if you would like to be kept informed of progress on the guide, you can give us your name and email address in the box below.
Whether or not you choose to give us your contact details, it would really help us if you would tell us why you are interested in this issue by ticking one of the boxes at the bottom of the page.
There will be a conference on 'Finding solutions: effective practice in male mental health at the University of Reading on 30 March (10am – 4pm) to help develop the new guide.
