Man Up?

Adrian_Scope Posts: 8,576 Scope online community team
On the 23rd of June, 1000 men will join forces to admit that having mental health issues is ‘ok’.

SEOmers have liaised with schools, councils, police and local Ipswich businesses to pull off one of the most significant and unique male mental health awareness campaigns in the UK. They are looking to reach out to males who may be suffering in silence, to encourage males who are putting up a front to their friends and family. Men aren’t very good about being honest about their emotions, or what’s going on inside their heads and society has for many years told men to ‘man up’ and to ignore their mental health.

SEOmers want to change that and are inviting any male, of any background, race or religion to join forces with 1000 other blokes, put their hands up in a photo and tell other men that it’s okay to have mental health issues.
