A MENTAL health support group is touring the country to get more people talking about their problems.
Andy’s Man Club, which meets in Dewsbury every Monday, will embark on a nationwide tour tomorrow (Saturday) to mark World Suicide Prevention Day next week.
Two buses will take 40 of the group’s co-ordinators from Scotland to Exeter to spread their message: ‘It’s okay to talk’.
Departing from Halifax, where the club originated, one coach will head south and the other north. The northern bus stops in Dewsbury – outside Costa on Longcauseway – at around 10.30am, where it will be met by club members and supporters.
Tom Nolan (pictured) who co-ordinates the Dewsbury group at Union House (7pm-8pm) said: “We’re just trying to flood Dewsbury with the black and white and get the message out there that it is okay to talk. It’s never about numbers but to get one man joining every week – I’d feel like I’d done something right.”
