Time to Blether, from Brothers in Arms, is a campaign designed to tackle male suicide rates in the UK where currently, 12 men take their own lives every single day. Tragically, suicide remains the leading cause of death in men under the age of 50.
The goal with #TimetoBlether is to encourage help seeking behaviour in men before they reach crisis point; and to provide a safe and easily accessible platform for them to be heard, thanks to our Blethr technology.
What Blethr Does
Blethr facilitates open communication, offering a judgment-free listening zone for men to express their experiences and emotions.
The platform ensures men can connect with a supportive safe space where they can communicate their inner thoughts whenever about whatever, with no filters needed.
Tech for Good:
We leverage technology to make mental wellbeing resources easily accessible, embracing its potential for positive change.
Though we may believe that gone are the days of gender-specific stereotypes; the expectation for men to be stoic and unyielding in the face of adversity remains in society today.
With #TimetoBlether we want to take a step closer to an open and supportive society, where men can discuss their emotions and experiences without fear of judgement. Be that digitally, face to face, or in group settings.
#TimetoBlether is about fostering open dialogue and creating supportive environments for men who might be struggling; a crucial step towards a culture where men feel empowered to share their thoughts and seek help.
The Campaign Goals
Meet the heart of #TimeToBlether – twelve men from across Scotland sharing their stories to inspire others. They courageously break down barriers, reduce stigma, and invite everyone to join the conversation.
#TimeToBlether will shed light on the critical issue of male suicide. We challenge stigmas and encourage open conversations to bring about meaningful change.
Central to our campaign is Blethr, an AI-powered platform providing a safe space for men to connect and blether whenever about whatever 24/7. We harness technology to foster genuine connections and support.
Our goal is to raise £120,000 in 2024 to enhance the Blethr platform and support outreach efforts. Join us through events, fundraisers, and grassroots initiatives to make a tangible impact on men's mental health.
