A Glasgow company has teamed up with secondary school pupils to raise awareness of men's mental health.

Factory Weights, a fitness start-up, collaborated with students from St Mungo's Academy in recognition of Men's Mental Health Week which ran recently from June 10 to 16.

The youngsters participated in practical sessions with leading Scottish sports and fitness figures, during which the professionals shared their personal experiences with mental health and their methods for managing it.

Joining them were representatives from the Brothers In Arms Charity, David Cox of CrossFit Airdrie, Jan Walker The West End PT, and Ryan Docherty from On The Ball Academy, all sharing tools to encourage wellbeing.

They demonstrated to the students how sport and exercise can combat stress and depression.

Factory Weights co-founder Tom Russell said: "Men's mental health is something that is still a huge taboo issue, you only have to look at the statistics to see this.

"We know that exercise can significantly help to reduce the level of stress we experience, as it stimulates the production of endorphins which ultimately makes you feel happier.

"We wanted to share some really personal stories and journeys from some very successful fitness professionals, to help showcase both their journeys but also how sport and exercise can be used as a mood lifter for the pupils and to show how honest communication combined with exercise can really help keep stress and depression at bay."
