The Men’s Group – Mondays – 7pm
For more information visit their Facebook Group @WestburyMen’sGroup
Westbury Town Council launched its first Men’s Group in November 2019, highlighting the fact that mental wellbeing is a yearlong focus.
The group will run every Monday at 7pm, usually at The Laverton
Wiltshire’s higher than national average suicide rate is one motivation for the group, not least because 75% of all suicides are male. It’s also true that 1 in 8 men have a common mental health problem but are far less likely to seek help than their female counterparts.
This meetup is all about having an informal space to talk or listen. Whether that’s about feeling a bit down or how terrible Man United are these days. There is no pressure and you don’t even have to say a word if you don’t want to. There’s tea, coffee and some snacks, along with a group of blokes who won’t judge and will just lend an ear. The group is aimed at anyone who just fancies a chat.
