Andy’s Man Club – Andy Barton

andysmanclubukAndy’s Man Club is a UK charitable organisation that coordinates weekly peer-to-peer support groups for men in the UK. It aims to help and improve mental health in men through self-help peer-to-peer interaction. The charity organises weekly 2-hour group talking sessions at over 180 venues across the UK, led by a trained group member called a facilitator.

It was formed in 2016 by Luke Ambler and his mother-in-law Elaine after his brother-in-law Andy, took his own life. This led them to discovered that suicide is the leading cause of death in men under 50 years old in the UK. This demographic has a cultural stigma towards discussing mental health.

The first meeting, held in Halifax, was attended by nine men. The charity has since set up groups in towns and cities across the UK and by February 2020 had over 800 men attending every week.
