About Brave Lads

The LadS Behind the Lads

Millennial men are one of the highest risk groups when it comes to anxiety and depression. So, we created Brave Lads. A place where men like us can find resources, support, and community. We’re taking back our mental health, together.

Men come in many different shapes and sizes.Some large, others small, some have hairy faces, some have crooked noses. We are all individuals on a different path, but Brave Lads is about the things that connect us as young men. We all share a desire to find meaning in our lives, to be the best version of ourselves, build positive relationships, and have some fun and adventure along the way. We want to look at life as good and beautiful, and to be resilient when things get tough.

Life is hard and the struggle often seems like a solitary one. Mental health issues like depression and anxiety can make the challenges of everyday life seem insurmountable. Those challenges are a part of what makes us who we are, but we need the right tools to tackle them.

Our generation is leading the charge to redefine how we understand and deal with men’s mental health. Being a part of that charge is at the heart of what Brave Lads is all about. Almighty problems have been solved by a group of lads, so we are getting to work on one that ultimately affects us all. We see a future where developing mental strength is as commonplace as picking up a dumbbell or heading out for a morning run. More happy and healthy men mean better role models, friends, fathers, sons, and partners.

Admitting you are struggling is Brave. Talking is Brave.Taking action is Brave.
