SToRMS - The Dan McAllister Foundation
SToRMS stands for “Strategies To Reduce Male Suicide” (aka The Dan McAllister Foundation) is a fund within the South Yorkshire Community Foundation which aims to implement Strategies To Reduce Male Suicide.
SToRMS’ Mission is to reduce young male suicides by:
- Facilitating widespread open discussions about suicide
- Promoting mental well-being and emotional resilience from an early age
- Challenging gender stereotypes that prevent men from accessing help
- Highlighting the relationship between alcohol and mental wellbeing.
They are a small organisation whose initial focus is to deliver sessions in local schools for teachers, pupils or parents, concentrating on these key areas. Through their work they aim to encourage a school-wide approach to supporting the mental wellbeing in every pupil/teacher interaction.
