Crewe Town Council partners with Mentell to offer Male Mental Health support in Crewe

Male Mental Health was recognised as an area of need in the “Vision for Crewe – Crewe’s Community Plan” report. Following an ‘Expression of Interest’ process, community funding has been awarded to Mentell.

Mentell is a registered Charity with roots in the northwest which was established in 2017 by a group of men with lived experience of poor mental health. They support over 2,000 men across the UK and offer all males (18+) the opportunity to talk in a safe and confidential space, free from advice and judgment.

Over the last 18 months, Mentell has been running a men’s mental health awareness campaign called ‘turn your borough blue’  that has seen a number of Crewe-based pubs, bars, barber shops and local businesses sign up to promote the message: ‘Men, is it time to talk?’

The charity supports 55 men living in Crewe and recently launched an in-person support group running from the YMCA on Gresty Road, which currently runs once a fortnight. With the help of the Crewe Town Council funding, local men will be trained up to take over from the current facilitator to create a weekly service that will last long into the future.

How can you access the support?

From 4th August:

  • Every Thursday
  • 7 – 9pm
  • YMCA, Gresty Road, CW2 6EL

Before 4th August, the sessions will be held once a fortnight.

Registering for the circle is essential. Visit the website to access the sign-up form and lots of other information – or visit the YMCA to pick up a leaflet.
