Two blokes will be hitting the highway as part of their mission to get men from all around the Murrumbidgee to open up about their mental health battles.
Rhys Cummins and Jesse Warran-Rigby from the Murrumbidgee Men's Group will be making their first stop at Griffith on Saturday, before travelling to Narrandera, Tumut, and Albury later in the year.

Mr Warran-Rigby said he hopes to encourage other men to talk candidly about their struggles, saying that's what saved him during his darkest hour.
"Much like a lot of men, I struggled to open up with mental health and I really felt I was alone," Mr Warran-Rigby said.
"Catching up with Rhys and having a real honest conversation around suicide and men's mental health really opened my eyes. It really does help to talk to a mate."
Mr Cummins said he hoped their efforts could help save a life, having nearly lost his own life due to depression and anxiety.
"It's been tough and it continues to be tough. I've struggled with depression, anxiety, and suicide ideation for most of my life," Mr Cummins said.
"It took my suicide attempt to open my eyes up to see that life can be beautiful. You just need to look around and look at the small things in life and show gratefulness for what we have."
