Men’s Support Groups based in Surrey, offered Nationwide.
Are you looking for men’s support groups? We are at the forefront of encouraging greater openness about the mental health issues men face. From depression and addiction to financial pressures and loneliness, getting things off your chest is the first step to feeling better and looking to the future.
Social pressure and assumed gender roles often mean men end up internalising their feelings and, as a result, delay or put off asking for help. However, it is vital that the stigma surrounding men’s mental health is removed.
Mental Health Discussion Groups for Men
Here at The Lucy Rayner Foundation, we hold mental health discussion groups for men, where people from all walks of life can talk, listen and provide mutual support to one another. Whatever mental health issues you are facing, our weekly meetings in person and via zoom provide a safe space that is completely confidential and free of judgement.
All of our men’s group sessions are on an ad-hoc basis so people can show up as and when they please.

Issues Men may deal with
Statistics show that men have a higher suicide rate and are more likely to turn to unhealthy coping methods like alcohol or gambling to deal with difficult feelings. However, by taking the first step, and approaching a charity such as The Lucy Rayner Foundation, individuals will quickly identify that they are not alone in their feelings.
With the support of those around you and by connecting with other like-minded individuals, we aim to normalise men seeking support and break down the barriers they are facing to tackle their mental health challenges.
We tackle various mental health issues that can affect men from all walks of life, including:
Sometimes you might find yourself in need of additional support outside of normal hours. That is why we also have a WhatsApp group, giving like-minded individuals another platform to feel understood and communicate freely on topics that matter most to them.
