StrongMen is a start-up charity with an ambition to tackle men’s emotional and mental health issues brought about by the suffering from bereavement.

By providing FREE weekend breaks for men aged between 18 and 55 who have suffered the bereavement of a spouse, child, parent or sibling, StrongMen aims to aid in recovery and encourage men to speak out about their problems.

Surrounded by stigma, male mental health issues are a difficult subject to tackle for many reasons.

Grief happens to be one of the biggest causes of conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress and, in extreme cases, PTSD.

Due to our personal experiences with these issues we, the team behind StrongMen, have created a service that encourages and promotes men opening up and speaking about their problems.


The primary focus will be on weekend breaks for men based around physical activities, talks and discussions from experts on the importance of looking after your body to aid in recovery, and speaking to people about your thoughts and problems.

Just as importantly there will be opportunities to talk and relax in an environment with other men who are suffering similar experiences and circumstances.
