A Bristol based campaign for better men's mental health. We're creating a space for men to talk about the things which matter to them by sharing advice, support and experiences on mental health and emotional well being.
In 2016 a total of 5,668 deaths from suicide were counted by the Office of National Statistics. 4,287 of them were male; that is 76%. Men are three times more likely to take their own lives than women.
There’s an undeniable crisis within men’s mental health and we plan to make a change.
We believe harmful stigmas have prevented men from talking openly about their emotional well being because it is a sign of weakness. In reality, keeping your feelings bottled up can cause serious harm.
We aim to create a space for men of all ages and backgrounds to talk openly about the things which matter to them. To do this we focus on three main objectives:
Discuss and share ideas to why we believe it is important for men to talk.
Why are men three times more likely to take their own lives? Educating ourselves about mental health is a vital step to creating change.
Encourage men to talk openly about their mental health and emotional well being.
We believe in talking. We think that keeping things locked away in your mind can be very harmful so we want to open up the conversation to create a dialogue and get people talking!
Help others support the men in their lives.
Supporting loved ones can be tough and sometimes we do not always know how to respond. We want you to know that it’s ok to raise your hand and ask for help.
