Men’s Minds Matter CIC
Finance / Accounting

Men's Minds Matter is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the prevention of suicide by building psychological flexibility and developing emotional growth. We are passionate about reducing suicide rates through the development and provision of psychological interventions that prevent suicide. Men's Minds Matter was founded on values of balance and equality for all people and we are committed to shedding light on overlooked and neglected areas in mental health. Our mission is to develop psychological interventions that prevent suicide, and to make these accessible to the people most at risk, with the aim of saving lives. We do this through our website where we offer self-help support to people at risk of suicide and for concerned others. Suicide is a significant global public health concern, resulting in over 800,000 deaths per year. It is the leading cause of death for men under 45 but still accounts for similar proportions in older men. Men make up three quarters of all suicides in the UK and globally. Why the community needs us We focus on making evidence based psychological information and support accessible via digital content. Our work is underpinned by a model of intervention based on Dr Luke's work in NHS crisis services where he provides psychological interventions to people with a high risk of suicide. Our mission is to make these interventions available to the 72% of suicides which occur outside of the NHS. We want to: improve awareness and understanding of suicide and how gender interplays; improve access to evidence-based practices that prevent suicide; increase the number of men in crisis accessing therapy/support; and train as many people as possible in suicide-prevention skills. Our impact on the community We raise awareness of male suicide by consistently providing accurate and scientifically-driven content via our website and social media platforms which are accessed globally. We specialise in developing psychological interventions that prevent suicide - drawing from psychological theory, evidence-based practices & clinical experience of working with people who are suicidal. Our aim is to guide people safely through crises by providing specialist self-help material, developing a web-based app and crisis cards, offering online workshops and building a community of support for people in need. How do we use the money we raise through our fundraisers? MMM is a Community Interested Company limited by guarantee. This structure ensures that the money we raise is used for the community we serve (people at risk of suicide). MMM has been run by volunteers since 2011. We use the money we raise to further develop our focus of developing interventions. The projects we are currently working on include:1) Web-based app – our most ambitious project involves translating our intervention into a web-based app2) Crisis cards – these crisis cards will include advice and guidance for people who are suicidal or in crisis3) On-going production of online self-help content 4) Video production for online self-help contact5) Workshop development - focus on developing the ability of communities to support people who are suicidal6) Leaflets and posters to raise awareness of suicide  We use money raised to progress these interventions and to bring in the skills we need to make them a reality. Your support means we can have a big impact on suicide and with the financial support we can do this work much faster in order to make specialist knowledge available to more people who need it.
