A man from Goole who was left “grief stricken” after his mum passed away, has launched a men’s mental health group in Goole to help get men talking.
Colin Cox has set up a branch of national charity, Andy’s Man Club at the Moorlands Centre in Old Goole to help other men like himself have a safe place where they can share their worries. The 44-year-old explained: “I lost my Mum three years ago and was completely grief stricken. I joined the Andy’s Man Club in Hull a year later and it completely changed my life. “Talking to other people completely lightens your load and makes a big difference.” After meeting Isaac Gray from Scunthorpe at a meeting in Hull, the pair decided to launch their own branch in Goole to reach even more men who need someone to talk to. Colin: “It can be nerve wracking going to the group for the first time, but all group facilitators at Andy’s Man Club were previously users, so they know exactly what it is like to walk into that room for the first time.” The group meet every Monday at 7pm at the Moorlands Centre, except on bank holidays. All men are welcome to attend, and no booking is necessary. For more information visit: https://andysmanclub.co.uk
