We provide a global male community of peer-to-peer talking and listening groups, sports groups and talking therapies to help build and maintain their mental fitness, which ultimately helps prevents suicide.
How does your organisation contribute to preventing suicide and supporting those affected by it?
In our male talking and listening groups, we ask each member to check in and out by simply asking “How are you? Out of 10?”, with one being the lowest and 10 being the highest. If a member checks out below a five, we signpost them to our therapy groups where they can get more support and help bring their numbers up.
What are your current priorities?
Opening up more talking and listening groups around the UK.
What challenges are you currently facing?
Financial challenges as we need more staff to help set up groups and support the volunteers who are already running a group.
