While male help-seeking has been known to be problematic, until recently little attention has been paid to the apparent mismatch between men on the one hand and psychological health services, which tend to be staffed predominantly by females, on the other. Historically, this has led men to disconnect from others, leading—among other things—to avoidable risks. However, recent theory and research have begun to explore this issue, embracing the perspectives of both the male individual and the service that—somehow—needs to reach them. This chapter shows how this research can be directly applied to design services with which men can engage more effectively and so begin the process of reconnecting to their communities.
