Men of all ages are less likely than women to seek help for all types of problems, including depression, substance misuse, and stressful life events.
The aims of the project are to:
• Champion the importance of men’s mental health
• Help to reduce suicide among men and boys
• Help people to better understand issues that affect men and boys’ mental health and wellbeing
• Work with health, social care and education professionals to ensure we offer the right support for men and boys
• Encourage men and boys to seek support for mental health and wellbeing issues
How to get help:

If you are aged 16 and over you can access their support through your GP or any other health or social care professional, or you can self-refer on the Wellbeing Norfolk and Waveney website or by calling 0300 123 1503.

Wellbeing is important to us all. We want to feel good about ourselves, to get the most out of our lives and feel connected to other people. ‘Wellbeing’ means feeling more than just happy and confident, it means feeling able to cope when things get tough in our lives or when our physical health suffers.
