A few words about ManGang
Feedback From Our
Don’t just take our word for it….
ManGang has been the best thing to happen to me for years! They are a group of friendly, welcoming and wonderful people. Mental Health is something that effects us all and ManGang work on breaking down male stereotypes and allow men to talk in a safe environment.
This group has helped me more than any NHS mental health wellbeing treatment I've had, it is the support needed while waiting for help with mental health issues from your GP. It is a source of inspiration for anyone involved, and has helped many men who struggle with poor mental health. I would recommend this group to any man who needs a safe space to share their problems.
I can honestly say that just over a year ago, I was ready to and my own life. My daughter somehow found out about Mangang on the internet To say they literally save me from doing so! There is no magic wand to it, just normal guys supporting each other with mental health issues and encouraging one and other If you honestly believe you have reached the end of the road, there is no light in the tunnel, then please, please believe me, there is. Please, please, please reach out There is hope and a future for you and me, whatever it is! Just reach out to us, come to the meetings, take what you need, and give what you can Remember, it's NOT wait to speak
“In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty.”
I came to mangang when I was hiding my depression from the world, in just one session with total strangers I felt able to share the darkness that I was living in. It's an amazing community to reach out to for support and some very wise words. It's run and attended by ordinary blokes who have their own struggles so you instantly feel not alone anymore. If you're struggling, visit the mangang at least once. It's ok to not always be ok.
