We recommend this…

for men who want a practical, actionable, straightforward guide to maintaining and improving mental health

A quick summary

This is like a fitness manual – but for the mind more than the body. It sets out the latest understanding on what works for maintaining mental health, and what helps when it dips or crashes. Each section provides some information, plus activities and exercises to try, and quotes from men with a range of lived experiences. You can dip in and pick and choose the bits that appeal to you. It’s very straightforward, quality advice underpinned by expertise from the mental health charity Mind. Highly recommended if you’re trying to dig yourself out of a hole, or avoid falling into one.


Publisher’s description

‘Incredibly helpful – every man should have a copy’ (Colin Jackson, former olympic athlete)

‘This book will save lives.’ (Elis & John, Radio X)

‘An essential read’ (Levison Wood, author and explorer)

Your body needs maintaining to keep it healthy. So does your mind. Sounds simple, but tired and outdated ideas that tell men how they ought to be, mean the message gets lost.

And the results speak for themselves: suicide is the biggest killer of men under fifty. There’s no more room for debate – taking care of your head space should be as normal as eating your five-a-day or going to the gym. Many books make impossible promises about how they will fix all your problems and stresses with some miraculous ten-step programme.

This one doesn’t. What it does do is provide practical help, when times are tough and also when they’re not. And just like with your physical health, it doesn’t always have to take much to make a difference.

Developed in partnership with Mind, the mental health charity, This Book Could Help is filled with straightforward expert advice and simple techniques to help you shake off what other people say you ought to be, prioritize yourself, meet challenges and develop new strengths, in areas such as dealing with stress, motivation, work and life goals. We all deserve to live fully and respect our struggles, so start here and back yourself every day. Because head space is not a luxury, it’s essential.
