A newly-formed group is offering one-to-one and group sessions to help Preston’s men manage their mental health.Advertisement
Menhear was formed in April 2019 by William Killeen.
The non-profit organisation’s mission statement says: “Our aspirations focus on promoting the acceptance of managing mental health as a positive and promoting a vision of regaining balance, control and self-worth.”
Menhear drop-in sessions give men the chance to engage in a one-to-one, person-centred chat at their convenience. This can include socialising, mentoring, or simply having someone to listen and talk to.
Group sessions and practical activities are also in place to help men to engage and work together.
William said: “Menhear is an organisation that has been formed in order to assist men to regain the fundamentals of wellbeing.
“There are ever-growing diverse needs within men’s mental health to be recognised. We strive to guide and support in whatever way suits a person’s needs.”

William said: “All three drop-ins are going really well, but there is always room for more. If you feel isolated or down or feel like a chat, just turn up. There’s a free cup of tea or coffee in it for you.”
