Men’s Mental Health Month with Kenny from ANDYSMANCLUB
During Men’s Mental Health Month we wanted to shine a spotlight on a service that provides support to men within Midlothian and we reached out to Kenny from ANDYSMANCLUB to hear about the work they do and how they keep themselves well.
Do you live and/or work in Midlothian and want to share your own experiences of mental health and wellbeing and the different ways keep you well?

I am passionate about men’s mental health and ANDYSMANCLUB as I have struggled with depression for the past 9 years and ANDYSMANCLUB has given me that hope that life can get better. It has transformed my life around and all I want to do now is give more men out there some HOPE.
I often get away in my campervan to help with my own mental health but I also love the outdoors and cold water swimming.
