Andy's Man Club #ITSOKTOTALK

ANDYSMANCLUB are a Men’s Mental Health Charity – Offering free-to-attend talking groups for men and challenging the stigmas around Male Mental Health.

They started off as one group in the small, northern town of Halifax. That first night 9 men turned up and spoke. There was a magic in that room that everyone knew had to be shared. They knew other guys across the country needed this same experience. They have worked tirelessly through Andy’s memory to grow their clubs. They now have groups at almost 100 locations and continue to grow across the UK.

They could tell you how amazing they believe it is to see guys still with them and improving their life. They think though, you will hear it best from the horse’s mouth…

The nearest club is in Wrexham at Yellow & Blue, 11 Henblas St, Wrexham LL13 8AE. Visit their Facebook page for more information:
