Men’s Health Week is an annual event that aims to raise awareness of men’s health outcomes and needs.

Stigma around mental health means men often find it difficult to talk about their feelings, this tends to be especially so for older men.

Men who are carers for their spouse also generally become more social isolated.

ECH is a provider of independent living and at-home services and identified the need for a group where men can support each other and feel comfortable.
