Hello everyone, we did it.
A 106 minute film.
Which is already saving lives.

Through the process I can now name 31 men we have helped to pluck up the courage to get help. And I have been told that we have already saved a life. 1 man’s life. 1 family. 1 world has not been destroyed. That’s all I wanted to do. You did that. Thank you.

So yes we had a premiere. In St George’s hall in Bristol.
It concluded with a 300 person standing ovation. I was very humbled.

Now we’re going to start the tour. Going to where then men are. To the Pubs and sports clubs they feel comfortable with. Getting men to talk. And take care of their mental health.

So if you would like a screening near you please get in contact.

If not:

Thank you for all your support both emotionally and financially.

After each screening we’re going to introduce “TALK CLUB” - as talking group for men, set but by men to help themselves.

Here is how to do it: https://jmp.sh/SmrlXLk

Thank you again.
