Men's Health Awareness Month 2020

Three times as many men as women die by suicide and men aged 40-49 die by suicide. These statistics highlight the need to address that men need more support and awareness about their mental health.

Gender roles societal expectations mean that men are less likely to talk about their mental health or seek help for it. Traditionally, men are expected to be the breadwinner and be strong and in control and this can deter them from asking for help

Charity Movember focuses on suicide prevention, early intervention and health promotion.
