The Ridings centre are proud to have partnered with Men In Need Together.
There mission is to reduce suicide in men aged 18+ by providing a safe place for them to speak out without judgement. They began out of tragedy when a close friend Jack Bentley took his own life when things got too much. They wanted to make sure that no men went through the same thing and created something beautiful at a time of sadness.
They do all of this by providing free support groups each week for all men to attend and talk about their struggles in a peer to peer setting. Each group comes equipped with at least one facilitator who run’s the group and directs the conversation and one counsellor who provides more in depth and professional advice and of course free refreshments!
They also provide free online support via our Facebook Page and sign posting to relevant organisations if specialist help is needed.
There goal is to have a free support group in every town and city throughout the UK to ensure that every man has somewhere to go if they need it and we are proud to be their chosen location in Wakefield, full details can be found here https://www.mintproject.co.uk/.
