Mens Mental Health Awareness and Suport Social Group

St. John's, NL, Canada, A1B1A6 (View Map)


Hi everyone, I tired to do something similar a few years ago and it didnt get off the ground but I want to try again. I wish to develop a social group for men who either struggle with their mental health or support men who are in a struggle of their own. I was diagnosed with persistent depressive disorder 10 years ago and like many men, always have been afraid to let others know how I am feeling because "men just need to man up." I know a lot of men like me suffer in silence or in solitude because society is not concerned about how we are feeling. I hope to grow this group by hosting meetups on a somewhat regular basis. We can host social events and maybe once a month host a simple meeting to discuss how we are feeling. My inspiration came from the UK group, Man Down. I cant paste the link in Kijiji but please google search it. While I would like to create this group, if it gets off the ground I'd like to have someone help me run it. Maybe we can come up with a good name for it. A good platform for creating group is Meetup but there are costs involved. I want to make sure folks would be interested first. If you are or know someone who may be, please reply or reach out to me at Hope to hear from you soon! Rob
