Some members just drop in for a chat over a cup of tea or coffee. This is perfectly in keeping with the objectives of the Shed to provide a place for men to be in the company of other men.
Some men suffer from social isolation and this as an important contributer to depression. Just being in the company of other people is often enough, but good conversation is a bonus.
There is also good evidence that some men feel more comfortable tallking about their problems with other men. It is not necessarily about getting advice. Often just talking about it is all that is needed to improve the situation.
