Lockdown 26 Dec -18 Jan MindtheMen update.
The safety of all our members and their families is always our priority. As we are about to enter another lockdown with the added concern of a new strain of the virus, we have decided the sensible action to take is to move our club meetings online temporarily (28 Dec, 04 Jan, 11Jan & 18 Jan)
We will review this at the end of the lockdown period.
Our online Zoom meetings will allow our members to meet in a safe space to talk, be listened to and feel supported.
To join a Zoom meeting please email email@example.com and we will forward an ID and password.
Take care and stay safe
MindtheMen was started in memory of Grant Macdonald who we lost to suicide in 2018.
The clubs are safe places where men (18+) are able to talk about their challenges with other men in a non-clinical setting. True peer to peer support.
Sadly suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 in Scotland.
In 2019 74% of people who died by suicide were men with many never being able to talk about how they were feeling.
MindtheMen’s aim is to reduce male suicide by providing an environment where talking is the first step to realising that there are other options.
Our clubs are free of charge and meet every Monday night from 7pm until 9pm. Just come along on the night, you will be made very welcome.
Outside of a Monday night MindtheMen have also been able to provide our men with the following activities: walking group, football team, art tuition, golf tournament, first aid, mindfulness, yoga and CBT. ( currently on hold due to Covid)
All of our facilitators have undertaken suicide awareness training.
