What are we trying to do?

Community, Connection, Conversation

Our goals

Establish a community for anglophone men in Switzerland, creating companionship and connection.

To provide a safe confidential environment where men can talk openly about the chellenges that life throws at them.

To normalise conversations concerning mental health, with the aim of breaking the stigma that surrounds mental illness.

WRS Interview with Dr Michelle Wright

Thanks to Michelle and WRS for their support in raising awareness!






Update and thanks

An invitation

Dont be silent chaps! Talking will always help chase the black dog away.

Do not conform to the social conditioning which leads to pressure build up! Lets talk about It's a tough old world out there. Pressure is unrelenting in so many facets of our lives. Work, relationships, money, health, faith. All men will face challenges, attacks even, on all these areas of their lives. At some time or another, we will all be under the pump. Pressure builds, but you rely on yourself to cope, to manage, to exist. Stay strong, stiff upper lip. But the pressure continues to build, cracks appear in the dam. Please talk to someone before the dam breaks. Professional, family, friend.

Churchill suffered from depression......

In 1911 he said, referring to a German doctor

'I think this man might be useful to me – if my black dog returns. He seems quite away from me now – it is such a relief. All the colours come back into the picture.'

Some other folk you might know who suffered depression and mental health issues

No one is above mental illness

When and where will this happen?

We want to listen. We want to be there to help you unload the stuff that contributes to the sadness impacting on yur life. DO NOT BE ALONE!
