Supporting Men's Mental Health
Statistics show that on average 1 in 8 men will experience depression, and 1 in 5 men will experience anxiety.
Unfortunately, due to the stigma surrounding asking for help, many men don’t speak up and
reach out for support. Mental Health challenges can impact anyone at any time and being able to have honest conversations with others is key to breaking the stigma around discussing these experiences.
Our brand is dedicated to breaking the stigma and raising awareness around mental
health conditions such as depression and anxiety, particularly for men due to
the increased stigma surrounding these challenges. Our brand mission is to
help men, and the people around them to start having these conversations
without the shame attached.
We also want to directly support charities by donating 10% of every sale to different organisations out there, whose key aim is to help those struggling with their mental health. Check out our products
and for more information on why we’re here, see the ‘‘Our Mission” tab.

Men struggle with talking about their mental health, and we are hoping that our products can open the conversation and bring light to this issue. Our sincerest hope is that we can help as many men and their families as possible and start turning these statistics around.
Men are over-represented in suicide statistics
- Mental Health conditions such as anxiety and depression are strong risk factors for adverse events such as suicide. Men, unfortunately, comprise an average of 7 out of every 9 suicides each day in Australia. The number of men that die of suicide each year is almost double the national road toll. These facts are a disturbing reality, things need to change, and men need to feel more comfortable being able to speak openly about their struggles. Source: Beyond Blue
Everyone goes through ups and downs
- Each person faces challenges in their lives and experiences ups and downs and can experience poor mental health as well good mental health. Mental health is not a static state, it can change often depending on different circumstances and life experiences. Being able to manage your mental health effectively can help you to live a more fulfilled and rewarding life and be able to support others around you.
Support is Key
- Show your mates that you care about them! Check in with them, make it a normalised behaviour to discuss how you’re feeling and how you’re going, this makes it easier for them to open up if they need to! Stay connected, catch up and chat regularly. Be there for your mates.
Check in with your Mates
- Look out for yourself, but also look out for your mates. Planning frequent activities or outings together can be a great opportunity to keep up to date with your mates. Planning a gym session, joining a sports team, having dinner at the local pub, or heading to the beach are all great ideas to help you connect with your mates.
