Andy’s Man Club #ITSOKTOTALK
Andy Roberts was 23 years old when he killed himself. The resultant devastation that hit his family was also followed by something more positive – his brother-in-law, professional rugby player Luke Ambler, became determined to prevent as many families as he could from going through such a trauma. He formed a men’s group called Andy’s Man Club, which in four years has become one of the most important organisations working to help men today – their group sessions are changing the lives of hundreds who have hit rock bottom and are continuing to grow in number at a remarkable rate. With 28 clubs now in operation throughout the UK with just under 1000 men attending each week.

Their success shows the depth of the problems out there for men, that they are crying out for such a place in which to share their issues, something which has traditionally been frowned upon. With Luke and his growing band of Andy’s Man Club members, the word is getting out there that we no longer need to keep our struggles to ourselves, and that true male bravery is about daring to open up, not burying your feelings away.
