ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION
In April 2018, I lost my brother Luke to suicide. He was in the military and served in Afghanistan. He never came back the same and battled PTSD.
From this, Leah and I realised the lack of support men have for their mental health. So we decided to Build A Brotherhood, a place where men can come to share their struggles and receive support if that is what is wanted.
In Leah's last position as a drug and alcohol counsellor with family therapy training we knew we could make a difference.
Twice a month we hold men’s support groups in hope to end men suffering in silence. Included in our support group we also run our Basic Life Skills Course in the second half.
We run these every first and third Thursday of the month at the Mooroolbark mens shed corner of Ellen Rd and Croydondale drive Mooroolbark Melbourne. 630-9pm.
Free or gold coin donation we give to the mens shed for using water and electricity.
No need to book, just turn up.
We also offer to run this with workplaces via zoom too. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
The subjects that are covered are:
•Self care techniques
•Anger management techniques
•Emotional regulating techniques
•Stress management techniques
•Grief and loss suffered from trauma or abandonment
•Values and Core Beliefs
The men from our support groups also organise events together like camping and other things.
We also do couples workshops and workshops for women who want to learn how to support the men in their lives.
We also share men’s stories on our Instagram @_buildabrotherhood in hope to encourage others that it is ok to open up about theirs too.
We also make merchandise to raise awareness for men’s mental health and our support groups,
Our merchandise is made to order so it does take around 4-6 weeks after you order to receive. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
Thank you so much for your support so we have been able to achieve.
Our vision is in the loving memory of Luke Bray.
BUILD A BROTHERHOOD
Improving the Lives of Many
Shout out to all the men going through a lot, with no one to turn to because the world wrongly taught our males to mask their emotions.
If our payments are shut we are currently processing an order. Payments will reopen soon to take our next round of orders. Thank you so much for the support in trying to end men suffering in silence.
