We are incredibly excited to announce that Held In Our Hearts will be partnering with Fathers Network Scotland to develop an app that offers peer support and signposting to support services for men’s mental health and wellbeing across Scotland.
Fathers Network Scotland is one of 11 organisations across Australia, Canada, the UK and Ireland to have been chosen to partner with Movember in their Social Connections Challenge. Movember will be investing AUD $3.54 million into 11 different projects, and this incredible app is one of them!
From our experiences we know that men need support, but do not always feel comfortable reaching out for help, speaking about their experiences of grief, or detailing how adverse mental health affects them.
As a baby loss charity, we have always recognised men’s grief and tried our best to build support through training male befrienders, 5-a-side football team, 1:1 support, peer support and counselling.
This new partnership is our chance to work with other organisations to develop an app specifically for men’s mental health, and to provide them with the compassion and support they truly deserve. Read more here – https://bit.ly/3gERxQ8
