Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Globally, on average, 1 man dies by suicide every minute of every day. The Movember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030. Having experienced my own mental health challenges this time last year, I want to help them get there.
In November 2021, I have once again shaved off my beard and am growing a moustache in solidarity with my MoBros across the world. I am inviting you to help me turn this into a fundraising event for Movember.
I am supportive of Movember because of their multi-faceted approach. What particularly appeals is their efforts in Working toward a world where men and boys are comfortable having conversations about the big things in life. My experience has been that we don’t talk to each another enough in meaningful ways. I’ve been inspired by others in the RPG community who has spoken openly about their struggles.
I’ve set a £250 target because I figured that if every one of Roleplay Rescue’s listeners chipped in £1 each we could smash that number. It’d be double what I raised about 4 years ago when I first took part. I’ve had generous support from several Patrons and friends already, so please do come and support this effort.

Help me stop men dying too young.
