A NEW men’s mental health group is being launched in Keighley.

The #ItsWorthTalkingAbout group will meet every Monday at the Hop On Worth micropub, in Cavendish Street, between 6.30pm and 8.30pm, from March 9.

A spokesman said: “Men can come down to a closed micropub with a safe, confidential environment to get stuff off their chests whilst enjoying a pint.

“Facing the fact that many men turn to alcohol when they struggle, #ItsWorthTalkingAbout is embracing this to encourage men to talk more about their personal challenges in a controlled setting, with trained professional mental health facilitators leading the informal groups.

“With a drink or two on offer, the group does but promote a responsible drinking policy and the premises’ location just minutes from the local train and bus stations supports this – along with guidance being provided within the group.

"We want to tackle the challenge of mental health in an accessible and functional way.”
