Preston North End Community and Education Trust partnered with Andy’s Man Club in April 2021 to deliver a weekly men’s mental health session at Deepdale.
Andy’s Man Club is a registered charity that was founded in 2016 after the tragic suicide of 23-year-old Andy Roberts. A weekly group in Halifax was formed thereafter, allowing men to come together to discuss their mental health in an open and welcoming environment.
There are now more than 100 Andy’s Man Club groups meeting every Monday night throughout the United Kingdom, bringing men together to support each other with their mental health.
A Preston group was founded in November 2020, initially at Penwortham Cricket Club, with the group running from the Preston North End Community and Education Trust offices at Deepdale since May 2021.
"Andy’s family were aware that if Andy had been able to go somewhere to speak, without the fear of judgement, where he felt comfortable and safe talking about his issues, it’s likely he would still be here."
Andy's Man Club is a group that encourages all men to talk and is open to any man over the age of 18. You do not have to be suicidal or have a mental health problem to attend. The aim of the group is simply to get men talking in a welcoming, friendly setting.
To get involved with the group, you can simply turn up to the session, held from 7pm until 9pm in the PNECET office at Deepdale on Monday nights - excluding Bank Holidays.
Please check back on our social media channels for updates on the session in the event that Preston North End are scheduled to play a home match at Deepdale on a Monday night.
