How one male support group is taking on depression and saving lives
Andy's Man club was started in Halifax in 2016 and is now helping men nationwide
“It’s okay to talk.”
That’s the message from Andy’s Man Club, a men’s mental health group founded by Luke Ambler that’s trying to change the way men think about their emotions.
They run support groups across the UK – and they know exactly why their work is so important. “Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45. We want to stop that,” the group says.
While there’s still an urgent need for more government mental health funding, Andy’s Man Club is helping men to realise it’s okay to be vulnerable and talk about difficult things like suicide and depression.
