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 email@example.com.
Hope to hear from you soon!
