The 12th Man campaign helps men talk about mental health. We offer training to businesses and interest groups to help communities develop the skills and confidence needed to support each other when life is difficult.
Learning to listen and having the confidence to talk are key to our campaign. Talking at an early stage about stress and mild depression is proven to be highly beneficial in preventing more serious mental illness or suicide later on.
By working as a network of business and interest groups the 12th Man will raise awareness of mental health and reduce the stigma that can be a barrier against men seeking help.
The 12th Man offers funded Mental Health First Aid training and ongoing support, to help businesses and interest groups support the wellbeing of their staff, customers and members, and to raise awareness of mental health in the community.
