A new initiative has been launched to work with Lincolnshire men at risk of self-harm or suicide. 

We have joined forces with Gainsborough Trinity Foundation (GTF) to deliver a new project to support young men and reduce the risk or suicide. 

Thanks to funding from Shine, the 12-month project aims to engage 300 men aged between 25 – 59 as well as spreading awareness further afield through signposting and campaigns. 

With a mix of face-to-face and remote support available, we are here to give men the platform to talk and steer them away from self-harm or suicide. 

The project will offer men outlets for peer-to-peer support groups, safe spaces to talk and techniques on how to improve mental health 

On the project launching, Jacqui Thorburn, Project Lead at Acis Group said: “We’re delighted to be working alongside Gainsborough Trinity Foundation. 

“This initiative will provide much needed mental health support through planned social events to men in Gainsborough and surrounding areas.”   

Damon Parkinson, Head of Operations and Business Development at Gainsborough Trinity Foundation said: “We are really pleased to be working with Acis Group on this exciting and much needed project. Men’s mental health is still, despite more awareness, very much hidden and not spoken about but it is becoming a more prominent issue.  

“We also want to say a massive thank you to Shine who have made the project happen through their funding and support.”
