MENTalk

MENTalk is a community where men can support and encourage each other to open up about issues they may be experiencing, without fear or judgement.  MENTalk was founded by three normal guys who want to break Mental Health barriers down one by one. The MENTalk podcast has provided a platform for men to connect with others and discuss mental health issues without stigma, by showing #ItsOkNotToBeOk.

The founders of MENTalk have a regular radio programme on Seklow 105.5FM on which they have special guests who can help their members. They have also undergone professional training, so that they can go in to schools and places of work and provide support, guidance and advice. They do all this because of a number of worrying statistics:

  • Just over three out of four suicides (76%) are by men and suicide is the biggest cause of death for men under 50 
  • 12.5% of men in the UK are suffering from one of the common mental health disorders
  • Men are nearly three times more likely than women to become alcohol dependent (8.7% of men are alcohol dependent compared to 3.3% of women)
  • Men are more likely to use (and die from) illegal drugs
  • Men are less likely to access psychological therapies than women. Only 36% of referrals to IAPT (Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies) are men.
