RammyMen / RammySOS
We would like to run a series of 12 monthly 'Rammy Lectures', where people with specific skills and expertise help our community improve - particularly addressing mental health and social issues.

About this cause
We work on strengthening our whole community but with an emphasis on issues that disproportionately affect our men (particularly mental health). We do this through hosting activity-based events that foster community resilience, but also through more directed support such as our suicide awareness conference and our peer support groups. We currently have over 700 participants and 360 volunteers.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We have identified a need for this project based on feedback we've received through our Covid-19 response (over 200 volunteers are engaged with delivering food, medication and mental health help), and also from feedback at our suicide awareness event. We are aware that the statutory services are struggling, and all our work is about actively helping ourselves and supporting each other.
