We recognize that healthy relationships include men and women as well as the state of our individual health. This men's program connects men in the community to reduce isolation, gain skills and improve support through social interactions.
Get out there
The Moving Mountains group plays frisbee golf down at Millennium Park.
Moving Mountains connects men in the Revelstoke community on a casual, social basis to offer support and interaction in a peer group, as well as having the coordinator to turn to for one-on-one support.
Previous get togethers have been playing frisbee golf down near the ball diamonds, men-only camp fires with the Aboriginal Friendship Society, and axe throwing at Peak Axe Throwing.
Moving Mountains is funded solely through grants and donations. To find out more email [email protected]

About the Coordinator
Taha coordinates the Men’s Outreach group, Moving Mountains, and the Men’s Campfire Group.
Taha’s background, studying Psychology lead to his career in the field of youth work. His desire to connect with others through the men’s group is a part of the way he participates in the local community. His upbringing in rural Ontario and personal experiences have shown the need for mental health support in small towns.
One of the goals of Taha’s work is prevention efforts – requiring a shift in the way people think about encouraging mental health practices and developing community as a supportive factor.
Taha encourages anyone accessing services to reach out and start the conversation, even if they’re unsure if the group applies to them, or they’re waiting for things to get bad enough before they look for help. In a community, we remain connected and give willingly when we can, knowing that support is there when we go to seek it.
