Being part of a community can have a positive effect on mental health and emotional wellbeing. Community involvement provides a sense of belonging and social connectedness, and it can also offer extra meaning and purpose to everyday life.
Communities can exist or be created from a shared location, hobbies, commonalities, and backgrounds, or a common cause. For many people, communicating with others – through online forums, social media, or in person – can help them to build mindshare, improve self-worth, and provide a greater enjoyment of life.
Spread the word
Help us spread the word and challenge the stigma around mental health by empowering everyone on the Isle of Man to feel emotionally and effectively supported with their mental health.
Our courses range from just 1 hour to a full day and are designed to enable people in the community to spot the early signs of a mental health episode, or help someone potentially struggling to manage their own mental wellbeing, even if it’s as simple as an ear to listen or acknowledging they’ve not seemed quite themselves lately.

Isle Listen is a charitable initiative entirely funded through the generous support and donations of the local community. Can you help us?
Every penny donated helps us to continue our work towards removing the stigma surrounding mental health and support young people.
Volunteering with us can be a very rewarding experience – and there’s probably more ways of doing it than you might think.
Without the generous support of people like you, we could not do what we do. Let us know if you’re raising funds for us or would like to support our campaign.
