Westbury Town Council launched its first Men’s Group, highlighting the fact that mental wellbeing is a yearlong focus.

The group will run every Monday at 7pm, usual in the Laverton’s Abraham room.

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.

However, the group is also aimed at anyone who just fancies a chat.

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.

This is going to be the start of a really exciting time for the town in terms of tackling it’s problems and highlighting its strengths together as a community.

The Westbury Men’s Group began on Monday November 4th, at 7pm at the Laverton.
