Mental health Ballarat
We are here to assist men affected by mental health in Ballarat.
Perhaps you are a man in the community who is struggling with depression, PTSD and/or other mental health issues.
Perhaps you’ve already tried to navigate the ‘system’ for support – and given up in despair.
Or maybe you think you might need help but just don’t know where to start. Talking to the GP might feel humiliating. Telling a loved one might feel like you’re letting someone down. Confiding in a mate might seem weak.
Or maybe you just don’t know exactly ‘what’ is wrong – so how do you talk about it?
Ballarat Men’s Mental Health (BMMH) is a unique, community-wide initiative developed by a committed team of locals in response to the frightening statistics of male suicide in the Ballarat region.
It is a non-threatening, confidential ‘first point of call’ for men to contact and say, “I’m struggling, but I don’t know what to do.”
