1 December 16th Safe Space: Overcoming the stigma of men's mental health!
Andrew Greenway from Andy’s Man Club.
At ANDYSMANCLUB, we want to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health and create a judgment-free, confidential space where men can be open about the storms in their lives. We aim to achieve this through weekly, free-to-attend peer-to-peer support groups for men aged over 18.

In mid-2016, nine men met in a small room in the stereotypical Yorkshire town of Halifax with a simple aim of talking through their issues and helping each other deal with their mental health. All in attendance were agreed there was a magic in that room that had to be shared. This was the start of a movement that has grown faster than anyone first involved could have ever imagined. Fast forward 6 years and ANDYSMANCLUB now has groups at almost 100 locations across three countries of the UK.
ANDYSMANCLUB takes its name from Andrew Roberts, a man who sadly took his own life aged 23 in early 2016. Andy’s family had no inkling that he was suffering or struggling to the extent that he would do this, and as a result looked deeper into male suicide and men’s mental health. They soon discovered that male suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50, with male mental health surrounded by well-ingrained cultural stigma in the UK.

Resilience Skills: A stronger you for the new year!
Our tutor Ann Bell delivering a Resilience Skills session.
Resilience is a word we all know. It seems quite straight forward to support others, to build skills and to develop Resilience. Why do we, sometimes, find it difficult to apply what we know about resilience to some of our own situations?
The aim of this session is to provide a definition and brief outline of Resilience. As Stress and anxiety can undermine Resilience, we will briefly identify and discuss stress reactions and its’ effects. The session will then focus on identifying your own personal skills and how we use those skills in our daily lives. The session includes simple strategies that will enable us build, maintain and reinforce the importance of Resilience to our wellbeing.

3 February 17th DWP Forms: What they mean and how to fill them in!
Rebecca Pope from Cardiff Council – DWP forms.
The Disability Benefit Support Team has been with Cardiff Council since 2018 (previously named Families First Team) and concentrates on helping children, people under 25 and parents/guardians of disabled children. We assist with Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Limited Capability for Work Questionnaire with Universal Credit, and Employment and Support Allowance, Attendance Allowance, and Carer's Allowance. We help with new disability benefit claims, completing mandatory reconsiderations, and support taking the claim to the Tribunal Service.
I started in the Council as a member of the Money Advice Team in 2017, before moving to the Disability Benefit Support Team in 2021. I have over 5 and half years’ experience in disability benefits from one off support with clients on a drop-in session basis, to case work and appointment-based support where we help the client from the beginning of a claim to the end.
In this session we will be looking at Personal Independence Payment and Disability Living Allowance to give participants understanding on how to make the initial claims, looking at the eligibility criteria and how to complete the forms. This session will include a Q&A and further information on where to find the appropriate assistance and support.

Let’s talk about Testicular Cancer!
Morgan Gregson-Jones from OddBalls will be raising awareness of Testicular Cancer.
Morgan Gregson-Jones from OddBalls will be raising awareness of Testicular Cancer, breaking down the stigma surrounding it and encouraging men to talk openly about their testicles and to check themselves regularly. The talk is fun, informal and gets people thinking about really important health issues from a less serious perspective. The talk is suitable for all genders.
“We cover the basics of Testicular Cancer, such as signs and symptoms, possible risk factors, how to check correctly, diagnosis, treatment, sperm banking and the importance of support networking. We also explain some of our initiatives, like our University Ambassador Programme, and provide information on how to fundraise for the charity.”
