Men’s workshop pilot (Anam Cara)

Who is this for?

  • Men aged 18 years old and over

Who provides this?

  • Anam Cara


*This pilot will begin on June 28th 2021.

Anam Cara is piloting its online “Courage over Fear” workshop for men.

Due to the pandemic and lockdown poor mental health in both women and men has increased exponentially.

Anam Cara is a predominately women’s charity, however, due to the decline in mental health over the last year and the result of lockdown and the pandemic, Anam Cara has been asked by both participants and local services to deliver support to men.

The workshop will run over 3 weeks and subjects will be posted daily. You can access it at your own convenience.

Anam Cara is looking to recruit 10-15 men who are willing to take part in this pilot. It would require you to register, view all the videos and complete a survey for final evaluations.

* Anam Cara is not a crisis or treatment service for individuals with more severe mental health difficulties. However, Anam Cara will support individuals on their pathway to recovery from substance misuse.
