McDiarmid Park Perth
Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK - even more shockingly, 42% of men aged between 18 and 45 have at one time or another contemplated taking their own life.
Andy's Man Club is the brainchild of Luke Ambler – a former Rugby League player from Halifax – who sadly lost his brother-in-law Andy Roberts to suicide in 2016. Luke started Andy’s Man Club in his memory and it’s now rolled out in 10 locations across the UK, with Perth being the first club north of the border.
The club runs every Monday evening between 7PM and 9PM, a day and time selected for a specific reason. Not only was this when Andy Roberts took his own life, but statistics show that this is the most common time for people to die from suicide.
Pop along for a chat, a cup of tea or coffee, and some biscuits. Listen to men in a similar situation and share your stories and feelings. It's a place to get things off your chest and to meet new people who know what you're going through.
Held in the Muirton Suite at McDiarmid Park, the sessions are for men aged 18 and over.
