Our Men’s Peer Support group provides a safe,confidential space for those who identify as male to connect without judgement.

About this event

Unrealistic expectations based on gender and a lack of suitable mental health options can prevent those who identify as men from honouring their mental health and reaching out for support when they need it. The Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division is here to help.

Our virtual Men’s Peer Support group provides a safe, confidential space for those who identify as male to connect without judgement. Sessions are weekly starting September 7, 2022. Newcomers are welcome!

Topics of discussion can include, but are not limited to:

  • Relationships
  • Family challenges
  • Employment challenges
  • Housing challenges
  • Food and music

This group is:

  • Confidential

  • Non-Judgemental

What does non-clinical mean? Non-clinical services are therapeutic, but relate to providing resource information, education, screening, and support until a professional health care provider can make appropriate referrals (if necessary) to primary care or formalized health care services.
