There are some great web-based resources available to help support our wellbeing, which we would like to share with you.
Movember is helping men and boys to stay mentally healthy, build strong social connections and take action early when times are tough. And the resources on their website is not just for November, but for any other month.
Developed by mental health experts, Movember Conversations is an online tool for those who want to feel more confident and informed when navigating an important conversation with a friend who might be struggling. Using multiple choice, Movember Conversations guides you through typical scenarios, teaching the kind of conversational prompts and responses that help to open up a conversation and keep it flowing meaningfully.
Is Movember Conversations for men only?
Not at all. But research tells us that men often don’t reach out for help when they need it, or they find it difficult to know what to say when reaching out to a friend in need.
Family Man uses the latest parenting strategies that support happier homes and better mental health. We created Family Man to get more fathers actively involved in parenting programmes. By equipping fathers with the right tools, especially in tough times, we’re aiming to help men live healthier and happier lives.
True North is a global prostate cancer program, proudly funded by Movember. Their mission is to transform the way you make informed decisions, receive care, manage symptoms and share lived experiences — by supporting and guiding you through every step of the prostate cancer journey.
46% of people with problem debt are also likely to have a mental health problem. Mental Health UK provides clear, practical advice and support for people experiencing issues with mental health and money. You can download their money toolkit that was co-produced with people with lived experience of mental health issues as well as money issues.
Anxious, stressed, depressed or having trouble sleeping because of coronavirus? Find NHS-approved mental health tools and advice to support you. Over 120 online resources are signposted to through Good Thinking, including wellbeing information sources; guides to improving mental health; courses on and offline; mobile apps and other therapy approaches.
Their self-assessment tool is updated regularly and Good Thinking users can see when the most recent update took place. At this time, their self-assessments are also of value to those with past mental health difficulties who can check out privately how they are doing, and when to seek further help, if it is needed.
We hope you find some of these resources helpful; also keep in mind information about local services on our website and Mind in Harrow’s online directory of local, regional, and national organisations to support you.
