My motivation

Fundraising for cause areas including:
Mental health and suicide prevention

I don't think it's any secret that mental health, particularly within the male community has received increased attention over the past couple of years. We (men) have grown up in a world which expected us to move on quietly, through life's struggles and torments, to keep that stiff upper lip and be the shoulder for others to cry on.

I am thankful that more men are opening up to their emotions, their life experiences, sharing with others and seeking professional help where needed. However, this is the tip of an iceberg that's been formed over centuries, with a modern day system that isn't designed to cope with it, as these problems never existed in the public eye before.

I was lucky. I found help when I had no idea I needed it and when I reflect back over the past 10 years, it has significantly altered the path of my future, for good.

I've remained quiet, but now I want us all to make an effort to speak to each other, even if for only the month of November, to create a network where those close to you feel safe and comfortable to disclose and not judge.
