The StrongMen Charity
We are a start-up non-profit organisation with aims and ambitions to tackle emotional and mental health issues brought about by the suffering from bereavement.
StrongMen will initially provide and deliver, FREE weekend breaks for men aged between 18 and 55 who have suffered the bereavement of a spouse, child, parent or sibling.
We are delighted to have been awarded a small grant from the "Little lottery fund" which has enabled us to fund start-up costs. Now we need your help to launch the first course and start creating real impact to some of the men that need it most.
Mental health issues within men is a difficult subject to tackle for many reasons.
Grief is one of the biggest causes of conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress and in extreme cases, PTSD.
It is with personal experience in these issues that the team behind StrongMen believe we can create a unique service that encourages and promotes men speaking out about their problems.
Our primary focus will be weekend breaks for men based around physical activity's along with talks and discussions from experts on the importance of looking after your body through areas such as nutrition, leisure and exercise to aid recovery alongside speaking to people about your thoughts and problems.
Just as importantly there will be the opportunity to talk and relax in an environment with other men suffering similar experiences and circumstances.
The first weekend is planned for Spring 2019 and we are looking for participants. If the above relates to you or someone you know, please register your interest using the form above.
