Dated 12th June 2016: An organization by the name of Confidare which works for men was established in 2011. This organization listens to men and provides assistance to them.

Thousands of victimized and distressed men have approached Confidare and its staff for getting help. As of now, it has branches in Delhi-NCR and Karnataka only. Only yesterday Confidare Community for Men concluded a 2-day conference. Conference focused on having quality discussions around men’s mental and physical heath.

As a result of the conference it has come to light that in 2014, 67.7% of those who committed suicides were men. In Karnataka itself, 5000 men ended their lives.

Confidare is organizing a 2-day “Conference on Men’s Mental Health & Legal Issues” in the month of June 2016 in Bangalore. The speakers at the conference will focus on a range of topics that impact men’s well-being and their performance at the workplace.
