Leaflet & tips card to help men help mates with depression
The MHF have teamed up with Time To Change to produce a new leaflet and top tips card designed to help men help their mates who might be having a mental health problem.
The odds on having a mental health problem are short - about 3 to 1 - but the chances of men talking about how they feel are very long indeed. This leaflet and top tips card will enable men to recognise the signs of a mental health problem in someone else and provides some practical suggestions on how to help.

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.
Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.
Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
