    Top Tips for finding support for men’s mental health

    Why is it uncomfortable?

    Considering why you find it uncomfortable asking for help and whether those reasons are actually stopping you from getting the support you need

    Look into support.

    Finding a support group; there are many around the country that are free and open to anyone (a friend of mine runs a very helpful drop-in service in Clydach near Swansea)

    Start with someone close.

    Talking to someone you trust, a close friend or family member, maybe even your doctor, can help get the ball rolling in the right direction.

    Companionship is key.
