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.

Social Support

The Moving Mountains group plays frisbee golf down at Millennium Park.

NOTICE: Due to COVID-19 Social distancing restrictions, Moving Mountains has options to interact virtually.

Moving Mountains connects men in the Revelstoke community on a casual, social basis to offer support and interaction in a peer group. The coordinator also provides individual, one-on-one support and can make referrals to local support agencies. Read more about the Moving Mountains program and coordinator in this article by the Revelstoke Mountaineer.

Previous get-togethers and activities have included playing frisbee golf down near the ball diamonds, men-only camp fires with the Aboriginal Friendship Society, and axe throwing at Peak Axe Throwing.

NEW! Our in-house counsellor Terri Forester is also available to provide up to 10 free sessions for Moving Mountains participants.

Moving Mountains is funded solely through grants and donations.

About the Coordinator

Taha Attiah

Taha coordinates men’s outreach group Moving Mountains, and the Men’s Campfire Group.

Taha’s background i 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 Taha’s goals 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.
