Here’s a case study from Paul, one of our recent MENtalk beneficiaries who’s been able to return to work following our support and regular attendance at Coventry sessions:
“When I first joined MENtalk I wasn’t in a great place mentally. Even after my first session I was still undecided, but I went back and was very glad I did. Both Sky Blues in the Community coaches were really approachable and made me feel welcome; as did all the other guys who were involved. I really enjoyed each session and they really helped me with my mental health, so I started to look forward to going every week. I’ve made friends and also completed a leadership qualification while I was involved. Even though I’m now back in work, I really miss the Thursday sessions. MENtalk has helped me a great deal and really helped me through a tough time.”
