Amend was formed through a group of men who wanted better for themselves and their families. They were tired of living in cycles of behavior patterns that they deemed were 'ruining their lives'.
They wanted a better understanding of themselves so they could navigate their way through life more aware, consciously choosing the life they wanted to live, rather the life choosing them.
