In honor of Men’s Health Month, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announces a pilot partnership with Manual Care, a men’s health and wellness company that provides self-paced mental health resources tailored for young men. Manual Care offers 24/7 anonymous one-on-one chats with bilingual healthcare professionals, as well as live streams on financial planning and more.
The program will be available through Manual’s digital platform and social media channels. Members of the NAHB Young Professionals Committee, as well as members of state and local Home Builders Associations and Building Industry Association Young Professionals Committees, are eligible to sign up for Manual, NAHB reports at no cost.
“Unfortunately, men often shy away from seeking help with their problems. Instead of forcing them into systems that don’t work for them, we need to reimagine how we support men struggling with mental health and addiction issues,” said Matthew Stefanko, CEO of MANUAL. “NAHB and its Young Professionals Committee understand this, which is why this collaboration between MANUAL and NAHB will be so fruitful for their members. The well-being of their members is very important to them and we are pleased to be able to support them on this journey.”
