In 2023 it is NOT acceptable that men still have little to no accessible and safe environments to talk openly about their challenges.   

We want to encourage men to talk about any issues they may be facing including daily struggles, drinking problems, relationship issues, mental health or to just come and listen and talk about life in general with a group of peers.
