BUILD A BROTHERHOOD
Improving the Lives of Many
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.
With Leah being in the welfare field for over 30 years, also being a drug/alcohol counsellor and family therapist we knew we could make a difference.
Twice a month we hold free 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.
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 have made this merchandise to raise awareness for our groups and to also raise awareness for men’s mental heath.
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.
Keep an eye on our social media for when we are taking orders. We do them in bulk every 6-8 weeks. If payments online are shut we are in the middle of doing an order and will be taking new orders once current one has been sent out. Thank you all for your love and support.
Our vision is in the loving memory of Luke Bray.
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.
