For thousands of years, men have gathered in circles to share stories with one another, build community and solve problems.
Traditionally, this would take place around a fire, which creates a space for open conversation.
The world has become a very busy place and these traditions have been mostly forgotten.
As the use of technology has increased, the need for face to face communication has decreased.
This has influenced todays society in a way that people feel more isolated and unable to talk about serious issues.
Mentell’s mission is to reconnect men with the circle, by offering every man the opportunity to talk.
It is only through the combined effort and generosity of volunteer support that Mentell has been able to achieve so much already.
Community partners and local businesses have a significant role in supporting Mentell’s message.
Local care providers; GP’s, counsellors and therapists help signpost new members to the circle.
Mentell’s short term vision is to make circles accessible to men across the United Kingdom.
Mentell’s long term vision is to make circles accessible to men across the world, in different cultures and communities.
