Somerset Boys and Young Men Network

Wednesday 27th September 2017 – a date for your diaries

Following on from the male mental health workshops by Mengage and Peter Baker, a meeting will be held on Wednesday 27th September 2017 to begin to formalise a Somerset network for work with boys and young men on health and related concerns .

The venue and time will be confirmed and posted on this page – and emailed to all people who indicated their interest in a local network.

We would like to thank all who attended the workshops for their participation, debate and contributions; a diversity of professions and opinions were represented and we were encouraged that so many people have an interest in this area of work and involvement in a local network.


We stated during the workshops that we would make materials available to people to use to develop their own work; these are:

Mengage – Boys don’t cry ppt

Boys don’t cry – workshop handout

Further resources and useful links will be added to this page in due course.
