Andy’s Man Club aims to eliminate the negative stigma surrounding mental health and create an open and supportive environment where men can talk about their feelings and the struggles that they may be facing. They facilitate weekly peer support groups for men over 18 every Monday (expect Bank Holidays) at 7pm all around the country.
Their name comes from a young man named Andy Roberts, who sadly took his own life in 2006 aged only 23. His family were unaware of the mental struggles that he was facing at the time so were unable to help him. They, therefore, have set out to help prevent other families from going through what they did. In 2006 Andy’s mother, Elaine Roberts, and his brother-in law, Luke Ambler, came up with the idea of ANDYSMANCLUB to give men over 18 the space to talk freely about mental health in a non-judgmental environment, since then they have expanded tremendously and currently cover almost 100 locations nationwide including Manchester, Oldham, and Rochdale. You can find your nearest support group here by clicking the link Find your nearest group | Andy’s Man Club (andysmanclub.co.uk).
Wrigley Claydon are extremely supportive of this organisation and: in 2022 Rhona Royle, partner, and Head of our Family team, nominated them as a Charity of the Year for Resolution and we are extremely pleased to say that they won and are Manchester’s Resolution Charity for 2023.
Our specialist family solicitors, Rhona Royle, and Terri Pickup are both members of Resolution (a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way) and treat all parties with respect and without judgement. They understand that when family problems arise it can take a toll on one’s mental health and emotional wellbeing. Therefore, they highly encourage any man who is facing a family issue to reach out for help if needed, this can be from loved ones or a charitable organisation such as ANDYSMANCLUB.
If you are looking for any advice on any of these matters, please contact Rhona Royle on 0161 624 6811 or email email@example.com.
And remember you don’t need to “man up”, you just need to speak up.
