Did you know? Three times as many men as women die by suicide (Mental Health Foundation).
That's 60 men every hour, every day, around the world.
Society's expectations and traditional gender roles play a role in why men are less likely to discuss or seek help for their mental health problems. We know that gender stereotypes about women – the idea they should behave or look a certain way, for example – can be damaging to them. But it’s important to understand that men can be damaged by stereotypes and expectations too. While there isn’t a different sort of ‘male depression’, some symptoms are more common in men than women.
In this round table discussion, our panel will share with you their own experiences and explore how we can raise awareness of the causes, signs and symptoms to better support those struggling with mental health issues.
