MenSpeak Men’s Groups are a soon-to-be charity which run men’s groups and men’s group facilitation trainings. The founder Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz plans to launch a book, podcast, and an online course - as well as launching the MenSpeak Men’s Groups charity.
The end goal is early prevention of mental health issues and loneliness by training people to hold men’s groups in their own communities, reducing NHS costs, mental health services waiting lists as well as calls to Samaritans and CALM etc. We want to train people to facilitate men's groups across society, from students to the elderly, fathers to ex-forces and every man in between, nationwide (and worldwide online) and ideally make men's groups as freely available and accessible as 12 step groups such as AlcoholicsAnonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, etc.
We have plenty of content that needs editing and repurposing, including some mainstream TV and media content.
We’re looking for someone who’s flexible, independent and willing to learn to help with the following:

"I think groups like this are hugely important, for men particularly, because there are so few other outlets for men to open up and talk frankly about their feelings without fear of embarrassment or being judged."
"In the first group I attended, I was able to vocalise negative thoughts and feelings that I had been internalising for months, and felt a weight on my mind immediately starting to shift. I felt supported, respected, and challenged to become a better person."
Jamie Rudman, Public Health Professional
"I got into mens groups after reading 'No More Mr Nice Guy' by Robert Glover. I feel like I've transitioned from a boy to man thanks to MenSpeak. Through it I've discovered purpose, passion, and my closest friends."
"I joined MenSpeak to share my life challenges during my separation from my ex-wife. I needed someone to listen as I felt I had no one to really turn to in a time of need. And this program saved my life. Literally."
John D, Computer Programmer
"I built an invaluable social network of great men and friends to share, connect and learn with. The groups have helped me become a better and authentic man, husband and father. The groups are priceless to help navigate the ups and downs of personal and professional life."
"I wish MenSpeak was available to me from teenage years. I have definitely been saved from experiencing enduring labels and problems that would have been labelled as "mental health problems."
