The Even Keel Foundation was established in memory of Michael Keel to help
unmask mental health issues in men and prevent male suicide, the biggest killer of men under the age of 45.
We want men to know that it's okay to feel vulnerable; that it's okay not to feel okay - and that it's really really good to talk. We are particularly focused, though not exclusively, on those men who work in farming and horse racing as both played a a significant role in Michael's life, and both are sadly vulnerable sectors when it comes to male mental health.
