Men's Minds Matter is a not for profit organisation which relies on the kind support of volunteers and the generosity of good people.
This years fundraiser will see us take on the Trans Cambrian Way with the support of Sean from Marmalade Mtb
It's a more technical of road experience compared to last years South Downs Way challenge. It's also a little longer at 105 miles with more climbing - 13500ft in total. That's three Ben Nevis' or a Ben Nevis each day!
With your donations of over £2000 from last year fundraiser, we've been able to keep going, cover costs and begin redesigning the website. Not only that we now offer THERAPY AT NO COST.
What, no cost! That's right, thanks to support, Men's Mind Matter been offering two sessions every week to male residents living in Southwark who are struggling with suicidal thoughts and life crises - work stress, relationship breakdowns, existential dread......or a combination of stuff.
This coming year we're aiming for more no-cost therapy sessions for men at risk of suicide. We will be working in partnership with our local NHS provider, University and local businesses to build on our model and provide an even larger suite of services.
Other projects we're working on include self help material for our website, ]website redesign, the Men's Institute, MMM podcasts, and blog pieces. We continue to actively research and support others including students, researcher and organisations. We also remain of the non-executive committee of the suicide prevention alliance.
All donations go toward providing more sessions and building on our sustainable model.
