Walking and talking

It’s enjoyable and rewarding working with The OLLIE Foundation. We recently created a logo and flyer to help publicise its new Men’s Walking Group.

Sadly, a lot of stigma still exists around talking about how we feel, especially with men and especially when they’re struggling. OLLIE’s walks aim to give men a safe space to have a conversation without worrying about being judged.

As someone who has struggled with the effects of depression, grief and loss, finding the most suitable help can be a lottery. Hopefully, OLLIE’s walks can be a little step forward in the right direction for men needing friendship, a listening ear, a voice, help and support. And hopefully too, as we come to terms with the after-effects of the COVID pandemic, it will raise awareness among the wider community of the impact on mental health being felt by so many people.
