Oli Vikse is the Project Development Champion for ANDYSMANCLUB. His job is to oversee our existing groups, make sure they are running to our core values and deal with any issues that arise in the groups. He’s also responsible for engaging with the community in the areas that they have groups and overseeing the development of new groups.
THE WHY BEHIND ANDY’S MAN CLUB
Andy Roberts was a loving and doting father, son, brother,
grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. He was an all-round top guy,
one of the truly nicest people.
His love for his daughter was inspirational to see and the way he looked at her and idolised her was a blessing. Sadly and tragically without any warning Andrew, at 23 years old, was taken away from all his family and friends by suicide.
On average one man every 2 hours takes his life in the UK. It’s often said a factor is that men don’t talk. That is why we were born to break down these stigmas, support men struggling with Mental Health issues, and lend a hand to suicide prevention. At ANDYSMANCLUB you don’t have to be suicidal or have a mental health problem, we just want to get men talking.
The great news is that more and more clubs are opening around the country, as well as virtual meetings online. Check out the website below, to find out more.
I was so delighted when Oli agreed to be a guest on my podcast because I know from my professional experience that men find it hard to open up and talk, The number of men taking their lives is horrifying, and more needs to be done to support men. We begin by talking about this, as well as Oli sharing his personal experience, and how came to join Andy’s Man Club. How he was going through a difficult period in his life. And by meeting other guys he didn’t feel so alone. A safe place in which men over 18 can meet up and feel supported, by other men in the group.
‘We are talking groups for men who have either been through a storm, are currently going through a storm or have a storm brewing in life’
I’m Oli, in 2016 I attended the first-ever ANDYSMANCLUB meeting, my life has gone from strength to strength ever since. Today, I am a Project Development Champion for ANDYSMANCLUB. I have a vision of making our services available to every man, in every town and city across the UK. The changes I have seen in myself, I have seen in others that have come to the club and I want every man who needs this to be able to experience it.
