Figures revealing that one in eight men in the county are suffering from stress or anxiety have been released to coincide with Men’s Health Week, which runs until June 15.

A free NHS Wellbeing service, led by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, was on hand for support at the Trafford Arms pub, on Grove Road, yesterday afternoon.

Chris Higgins, Trafford Arms landlord, said: “I think that this is a very positive initiative.

“As someone who has never been very good at handling stress I was looking forward to the availability of an informal chat with a professional in this field of healthcare.”

Men in Norfolk who are registered with a GP and think they may be suffering from stress or depression can refer themselves to 
the Norfolk Wellbeing Service.

  • at last, something positive about mental health. It would be great if the paper was to spend more time telling people how to get help rather than all the negative stuff.
