Increasing Access To Support For Men

Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest are proud to announce a new series of activities developed specifically for men living in Hackney and the City of London in collaboration with the City and Hackney Wellbeing Network.

Local research shows that men are less likely to access mental health support and so, as the leading provider of community based mental health services in East London, we are trialling some new programmes in the hopes to redress the balance.

Over the coming months, we will be piloting groups surrounding men’s mental health including a Talking Therapy group, Yoga For Men and a ‘boot-camp’ style programme.

 

What we have on offer

Fitness Bootcamp
When: 7-8pm every Thursday starting 23rd May

We’ve partnered with Elite Evolution to offer a 6-week men’s bootcamp course. Sessions are from 7-8pm every Thursday beginning Thursday 23rd May at London Fields. Designed for all levels of fitness, join us and others to improve your wellbeing, build confidence and become your strongest self yet.
