Learn about the benefits of Men’s Sheds in reducing isolation and loneliness and enhancing men’s health and wellbeing. The common vision of Men’s Sheds around the world is to create a safe space where men can enjoy meeting, making friends, socializing and help each other overcome feelings of isolation and loneliness. Commonly refer to “health by stealth” in that, when men start to talk about health issues (physical and mental) they are encouraged to be more proactive in reaching out for professional care.
