Chat and Connect Mental Health Support for Men

In response to COVID-19 ManHealth have been funded to offer a confidential free support and information service to men in County Durham and Darlington who are struggling with their mental health. Men are able to talk in confidence with our trained male facilitators. The service operates 7 days a week from 6-10pm.
