It was great to meet Scott Johnson today to discuss his fantastic initiative, the Proper Blokes Club, which he's started to try and break down stigma around male mental health through "walk and talk" evenings.
In trying to tackle the "man up" culture, Scott hopes to bring empathy back into conversations men have with each other, and empower blokes to be able to honestly answer the question "how are you?" without fear of being judged or laughed at.
I'm hugely supportive of Scott's efforts here, and it was a pleasure to hear more about his own journey with mental health.
The evenings are open to men of all ages and stages of life, and he's holding his first walk this evening in Beddington Park at 6.30pm.
