Andys Man Club
SUICIDE IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR MEN UNDER 50 IN THE UK
The NHS confirms that more than 6000 people take their lives every year, and more than three quarters of that number are male.
To put this into perspective, it’s the equivalent of one man taking their own life every two hours.
One reason the rate of suicide is so high for men is the ingrained cultural stigma that prevents many men talking openly about their problems and their mental health.
The charity takes its name from Andrew Roberts, who sadly took his own life in 2016. Andy’s mum and brother-in-law set up ANDYSMANCLUB to provide support to every man in his time of need and help them see that tomorrow can be brighter than today.
ANDYSMANCLUB currently operates in over 100 locations across the UK and helps over 2000 men weekly.
ANDYSMANCLUB is set up to help eliminate the stigma surrounding men’s mental health, and provide a safe, judgement free space for men to talk about their problems and the issues affecting their lives.
For men in the Burnley, Rossendale, Ribble Valley and West Yorkshire areas, Burnley FC in the Community host ANDYSMANCLUB every Monday Night (excluding Bank Holidays) between 7pm and 9pm in the Jimmy McIlroy Stand at Turf Moor.
Jimmy McIlroy Stand,
7PM - 9PM
