Share Your Story

I want to hear your story about how men’s mental health has effected you and shaped who you are today.

No matter where you are in the world, from the depths of the Artic Circle to the chaotic centres of urban jungles, I want YOU to get involved.

The stories I gather will be invaluable for my research into men’s mental health. They may be used on this website, published in a book, and/or PhD thesis.

I understand sharing something so personal can be frightening so rest assured everything is treated with absolute confidentiality. For example, if your story is used in this work, there will no identifying names or locations.

Your story is safe with me.


Important things to know;

  1. Please only complete the form relevant to the gender your identify as.

  2. Please feel free to write in your first language. I will use a translator, so don’t worry!

  3. By submitting your story you are agreeing to be part of the Happylands research and it will be used to gain a greater understanding of men’s mental health.
