Best practice: Delivering Male - mental health guidelines

The first ever set of guidelines addressing the mental health needs of men and boys have been launched by the Men's Health Forum and Mind.

Commissioned by the National Mental Health Development Unit following Mind’s 2009 Get it off your Chest campaign and the Forum’s report Untold Problems, the joint report Delivering Male aims to remedy the fact that there has been no national men’s mental health strategy to mirror the one established for women.

The report provides in depth guidelines that have been developed through extensive consultation and offers good practice advice on areas such as developing appropriate services, dealing with stigma and supporting male inpatients.
