What is blOKes?
Founded in June 2020, blOKes is a registered community interest company (CIC) that provides men (16+) with a safe, supportive and non-judgemental platform to open up about their mental health, connect with others and tell a #MaleTale.
While conversations surrounding mental health are becoming more commonplace among men, we understand and appreciate that it can be difficult to vocalise thoughts and feelings sometimes. Via the blOKes forum, we aim to offer men the chance to share experiences, stories, guidance, tips, and advice with likeminded individuals, as well as connecting men from across the world.
Alongside our clinical mental health partner Willow Grove Consulting, we facilitate and deliver talks, events, webinars, and workshops, as well as providing men's mental health information, resources, and supporting materials to schools, colleges, universities, sports clubs, organisations, and businesses across the UK.
"The blOKes forum is a really safe space to be honest with yourself and others. It's been a great tool for me to open up about a topic I otherwise wouldn't."
