Mind the Men

Mind the Men (Glasgow) We are a men’s (18+) peer support group. We provide a safe place to talk about life’s challenges, be listened to and feel supported. Our aim is to halve the number of suicides in men under 45 and get people talking about mental health. Come in and join the circle of support. Talk and share or just listen and care.
