PROMOTING MEN'S MENTAL HEALTH
Ride together to prevent men’s suicide.
Ride, reach, and then tell the story, to make things change…
Ride and reach those in need of help, and those that help, bringing solidarity to face men’s mental health issues and to prevent suicide.
Promote help among peers, cast a light on the many innovative actions taken by field working associations throughout Europe, and gather the strength of all those actors.
Rouler pour agir ensemble contre le suicide des hommes.
Rouler, faire des rencontres puis les raconter, raconter pour que ça change…
Rouler vers ceux qui ont besoin d’une main tendue, et vers ceux qui font acte de solidarité face aux problèmes de santé mentale qui touchent les hommes partout en Europe, particulièrement le risque suicidaire.
Encourager la solidarité entre pairs pour améliorer leur santé mentale, mettre en avant la richesse et l’innovation des acteurs de terrain partout en Europe, rapprocher tous ceux qui se sentent concernés.

Mental health is a major health concern for men.
Men account for 75% of deaths by suicide, yet they are far less likely to seek out mental support than women are. Interactions with peers or friends are more effective at reaching out men in need of such help than ordinary prevention campaigns.
We believe that promoting solidarity is paramount for encouraging men to find the support they need. Through the imagery and values they convey, vintage motorcycles offer a formidable resource for bringing men together. There is history, design, solidity and fun, both purpose and leisure, and the sheer joy of sharing a ride…
And you never leave a fellow rider behind!
Meeting and narrating.
Touring major events related to motorcycles throughout Europe and reporting them through videos and pictures on social media, we shall be able to convey these values of solidarity and promote efficient actions taken all around in a fun, and subtly laid-back way.
We believe we can reach out to men more efficiently this way.
Our team is already workin on designs related to the motorcycle imagery...
An initiative promoted by FEALIPS.
The European Federation of Associations Against Isolation and for the Prevention of Suicide (FEALIPS) is an NGO, focusing on associative work in mental health, building bridges between research, social workers and health practionners.
The Ride and Reach program also aims at allowing our members to connect with others throughout Europe, hence encouraging the exchange of practices, and enabling field actors to benefit from each other.
Shared tools, forged together, could go a long way in improving the way we help men take care of themselves!
