Mandem Meetup

Mandem Meetup

Our Health Development Coordinator for Withington & Old Moat has been working with the Mandem Meetup to support them in achieving their charitable aims. ‘Mandem Meetup is a grassroots charity promoting, correcting and improving the conversation around men’s mental health and wellbeing.’

To support them in reaching out to more men, and to provide new opportunities for members of the Mandem Meetups peer network we introduced them to Bloc 2 Bloc Entertainment who are a Manchester grown organisation who aim to showcase and promote talented musicians, artists and creatives.

Mandem Meetup and Bloc 2 Bloc are now holding 2 collaborative events and want the men of Manchester to get involved. All events are free and have been designed by local men to improve conversations around men’s mental health in our community.
