About Ross Jackson-Hicks

Ross Jackson-Hicks, from Cornwall, is a hairdresser and founder of ‘Man Down Cornwall’, a male support group that runs fortnightly sessions in 18 locations across Cornwall.

Ross, who has struggled with mental ill health and addiction, created the group out of frustration at being told to ‘man up’ and as a way of giving men an emotional outlet with their peers. ‘Man Down Cornwall’ organise walks, talks, activities, evening events and breakfast meet ups, as well as hosting events and challenges that raise awareness of the group and bring men together to help each other work through their issues and concerns.
