COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR GENDER –
With a colourful history of mental health issues between them, Davey Shields, Damian Friel and their friends are on a journey to find humour in some of their darkest moments, and make it their mission to try to get men talking about their own mental health. What began as a one of episode showcasing a funny and honest chat between the two, soon expanded into multiple episodes with a growing number of listeners. Everything MenTalkHealth has developed into since then has been about making sure others feel supported enough to reach out, to know they won’t be rejected if they do and that talking can save lives. Alongside their podcast episodes, their events have become a staple of the community in Brighton. With a weekly MenTalkQuiz at Bar Broadway, Musical Therapy Cabaret days and numerous individual events, they have the community talking about mental health in a real and honest way.
SHARING IS CARING!
