Traditional stereotypes of men show men as people who don’t want to show weakness or deep emotions. Because of this some men feel uncomfortable about speaking about their feelings. Often men that are experiencing a relationship break up find themselves isolated in their pain.

The Men’s Hearts Break project allows men to listen to other men speaking about how they felt when their relationships ended. This work provides opportunities for men to listen, even if they don’t feel ready to talk or want to talk. It provides an alternative space to process emotions.

All recordings are real accounts of men’s experiences. Some are read by actors and others by the men themselves.

These true stories offer companionship, solace and a ray of hope to men coming to terms with similar experiences.

*The work includes men speaking candidly about feelings of suicide.
