Sefton In Mind are pleased to announce the opportunity to apply for a one off grant to support men’s mental health. The primary focus is targeted at improving men’s access to mental health support specifically to:
· reduce the number of suicides in middle-aged men in Sefton
· enhance men’s awareness and their ability to improve their own mental health: including help-seeking skills
· provide programmes that mean men are better able to manage in a crisis
· facilitate projects that are co-produced with those with lived experience.
When people who have experienced mental health problems use this experience to help inform and shape services, this is sometimes referred to as the voice of lived experience. Nationally men use mental health services less often than women, We are keen to hear more from men who have used mental health services, whether in the statutory or voluntary sector, to understand how we can support more men to come forward.
Projects do not necessarily have to be new.
We are looking to fund projects aiming to improve the mental health of men, particularly those of working age.
The maximum amount to be awarded will be £3,000. To view the grant criteria click here
