Man down is a Cornwall based group offering a safe space to meet the current emotional and mental health needs of men who are struggling to cope with the everyday pressures facing them in our modern society.
Unfortunately we are going to suspend all of our fortnightly meetings until further notice.
We hope you understand this decision as we put the well being and health of all our members and facilitators first.
We expect some of you may be finding the spread of Covid-19 more worrying than others.
You can be re-assured that the medical, scientific and public health experts are working hard to contain the virus and protect us all.
Although most people’s lives will have to change in some way over a period of days, weeks or months - in time it will pass.
This is temporary.
If you feel the situation is worsening your mental health we are still here to support you:
For our members: All the private Facebook groups will provide you with the support you need for now and please message us anytime or day.
Some of our facilitators may be setting up online or telephone meetings to replace the physical ones. Keep an eye on your own group for this.
If any of our members, or people planning to attend their first meeting, are not on Facebook please ‘contact us‘ via our website
If you have not attended a meeting and are not therefore in a private Man Down Facebook Group you can also private message us via our public Facebook page.
We will be posting communications regularly, especially on how we will stay supporting you all.
For now please look after yourselves, stay calm, keep helping each other and follow instructions from the government.
Thank you all for your support, patience and kindness.
You are not alone. Let’s keep talking about it! #mandowncornwall2020💙

We offer a very informal, safe and relaxed environment for men of all ages 18+ who are struggling with any kind of mental health issues. Our sessions are designed to be as inclusive as possible with no judgement, only support and understanding from people who might be able to offer you some help.
We currently have eighteen locations, and are planning to have the whole of Cornwall covered by the end of 2020.
THE MAN DOWN JOURNEY
We not only organise fortnightly meet ups, we also host events and challenges that raise the awareness of the group and bring men together to help each other work through their issues and concerns, we have weekend retreats and each group arrange their own social events.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"It doesn’t matter where you think you are on the mental well-being spectrum, these guys are awesome support. Bringing all perfectly normal blokes together to talk about their experiences should be exactly that - NORMAL "
