MEN TOO was originally set up because of the loss of a personal male friend to suicide. We noticed that it was becoming increasingly common for males to end their own life.
Our founder, Katie Taylor-Smith, further researched Male mental health statistics and identified rising trends of suicide. This influenced the launch of MEN TOO with the initial aim of creating awareness of males, currently as a vulnerable group in society.
Who Are We
MEN TOO provides a supportive platform and awareness to everyone who needs help with men's mental health. Since 2017, our one-of-a-kind Resource Centre is composed of experienced support groups, with individuals who are ready to listen, share advice, and offer whatever they can to help those going through a tough time.
We are proud to be a reliable source of comfort, compassion, and understanding. Our goal is to help one another by directing those, in-need. to organisations who can help. From financial support to emotional distress and depression- we’ve helped countless individuals as they navigate through difficult times.
When people are facing challenges, it’s helpful for them to be able to find support from others who understand exactly what they’re going through, and that’s what they’ll find at MEN TOO.
