A NEW branch of the men's mental health group Andy's Man Club is opening at the end of this month in Keighley.

The new club will launch on January 31, with meetings taking place at Project 6 in Devonshire Street in the town.

Andy's Man Club was set up by former professional rugby league player Luke Ambler following the suicide of his brother-in-law Andy, and Andy's mother Elaine Roberts in 2016.

The aim of the charity is to give men struggling with their mental health a place to go and share their feelings and experiences with others in a judgement-free environment.

Everything is built around the charity's mantra, "It's okay to talk", making mental health a subject spoke about openly and saving more men's lives.

Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 40 in the UK.

The Keighley club will be the second to open in the district; Bradford's is located at Dancestars in Sunbridge Road, while there are also branches at Cleckheaton Fire Station and the old Town Hall in Thornton Square, Brighouse.

Meetings are free to attend and open to men of all ages and walks of life seeking help to address their mental health challenges.
