It’s okay to talk.

Who we are
WE BREAK DOWN
THE STIGMA OF MEN’S
ANDYSMANCLUB has over 100 free support groups nationwide, running every Monday from 7PM except bank holidays. In these groups, men can open up about the storms affecting their lives in a safe, judgement-free and non-clinical environment. Our clubs are designed to be free of pressure, there is no obligation for men to speak, they can simply listen if they wish.
With over 1800 men using our sessions every week, and an army of 500 volunteers on board, the movement is continuing to grow week-by-week. We firmly believe in the power of talking and that #ItsOkayToTalk.
Established in 2016 by Elaine, Andy’s Mum, and Luke, Andy’s Brother-in-Law, the aim of the club is to provide men with a safe space where they feel comfortable to talk and open up about their experiences in a room free of judgment.
THE FIRST RULE ABOUT ANDYSMANCLUB IS
IT’S OKAY TO TALK
Simply put, that’s the whole point. It’s a group where men don’t have to battle to be heard or listened to, but where they can join the fight against reducing the rate of suicide in men.
WE HAVE ONE AIM,
TO HELP ONE GUY,
TO SAVE ONE LIFE.
ANDYSMANCLUB takes its name from Andrew Roberts,
a man who sadly took his own life aged 23 in early 2016. Andy was a lovely and doting father, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, and was just 23 years old when he was taken away by suicide, sadly and tragically without warning.
On average one man every two hours takes his life in the UK. It’s often said to be a factor is that men don’t talk. That’s why ANDYSMANCLUB was born. Established in 2016 by Luke Ambler, Andy’s brother-in-law, the aim of the club is to break down these stigmas, support men struggling, and lend a hand to suicide prevention.
That change starts with you...
REAL PEOPLE, REAL STORIES
“ANDYSMANCLUB is a very relaxed atmosphere once you get settled. The hardest part is taking the first step through the door but ask any of the guys that have done it and they'll tell you they're glad they did.”
1800+ Men Attending.
We're a brotherhood.
ALL OUR GROUPS MEET EVERY MONDAY AT 7PM
(EXCEPT BANK HOLIDAYS).
We run talking groups for men who have either been through a storm, are currently going through a storm, have a storm brewing in life or just want to meet a good group of people with the aim of improving one another. No referral, no registration and no charge. Even the brew and biscuits are free!
