Tough Enough To Care - Men's Peer Support Group
Welcome to the home of Tough Enough To Care for Hamsphire.
'Our aim is to provide help and support to anyone affected by male mental health issues.'
Now meeting at Westside Community Centre, South Ham
Tough Enough To Care Mission
'We want men of all ages to feel comfortable talking and opening up about their emotions to those close to them, instead of bottling them up until they reach breaking point. We also want men to be able to spot when others may be struggling. There is no shame in being Tough Enough To Care.'
TETC Basingstoke meet on a Monday night between 19:00 and 20:30. To attend, all you have to do is be a male over the age of 18. You don't need to talk if you don't want to. The sessions are there to support you as well as to enable you to offer support to others, sharing experiences, ideas or simply just by listening. The sessions are drop in and completely FREE and you will be in an all male environment. There is no judgement.
Equally, if you are in a position to support this group as a volunteer, we would love to hear from you. Basingstoke's previous Mayor has got behind TETC by choosing them as a charity to support last year. You could do the same!
