We recently had the privilege to speak to John Parling, hear about his struggle with depression and the importance of Andy’s Man Club and similar organisations in encouraging people to talk about mental health and the difficulties they themselves are experiencing.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 45. You can read how depression has blighted John’s life in this week’s Yorkshire Post along with the importance of raising awareness and encouraging others to talk about their feelings.
Andy’s Man Club hosts talking groups for men across the UK – including one in Wakefield – and aims to tackle the growing issue of men’s mental health by reminding people #ITSOKAYTOTALK.
Carmel Harrison PR is keen to play its part in raising awareness about mental health and is one of the sponsors of this year’s Wakefield Festival of Beer, which is raising money for Andy’s Man Club, Wakefield Hospice and Wakefield MS Society.
