WHO WE ARE
Welcome to Martyn’s Monday Club. We are a peer to peer support group for men and women based in Oban, Scotland.
Please help us challenge the stigmas of mental health and discrimination. We offer a friendly and safe environment where like minded peers can sit together and talk about pretty much anything with a cuppa and a cake or two.
We share issues.
We share by Talking together.
We share because its good to talk.
We share life experiences.
We share interests.
“Being part of a group of people that have been through what I have makes so much difference – we all support each other and learn from each other.”
Martyn is the reason we do what we do.
Martyn was a 37-year-old man from Oban. He was a son, father, brother, and also a good friend to many.
He worked hard and played hard; his great love was cars and 4x4s. Martyn always stood up for the underdog. His biggest dislike was bullying in any shape or form and always helped anyone in difficulty from bullies.
Martyn had his own troubles, which he did not really speak about – he was too busy helping others and it was these troubles, which were to cost him his life.
Martyn left home one Monday morning May 2018 and went for a drive and never came home. Martyn became another suicide statistic. This is the sad story of why we do what we do. If we can get one person to speak to prevent this happening again it will be worth it
It is good to talk so please do and remember it’s okay to be not okay.
