“Man, I’ve been there.”
For a guy drowning in an ocean of depression, these four words can be a lifeline. Hearing that someone else once felt as hopeless and empty as they do, but managed to recover, can be powerful medicine.
Our peers are men who have battled depression themselves, and have regained control of their lives through community support and lifestyle changes. These guys offer a listening ear and friendly advice that’s free of the therapist-patient power dynamic.
Men can connect with a Face It peer in two different ways. For a man living in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Face It can connect him to a peer who has battled depression to chat with by phone or email, or even meet for a cup of coffee. Men living outside of the Twin Cities can access a peer via online chat or email on the Connector Plus website.
