Sixty men commit suicide evey hour of every day around the world and yet they are still less likely than women to seek mental health support.
As part of our International Men's Day programme of activity we wanted to explore men's mental health further to understand the root causes and learn how we can collectively tackle this problem.
Our roundtable discussion on Men's Mental Health included a diverse collection of speakers providing their insight and advice on how we can raise awareness of the causes, signs and symptoms to better support those struggling with mental health issues.
The session was chaired by DWF Partner Jewels Chamberlain and included contributions from the following speakers:
- Jon Head, Senior Associate, DWF
- Saj Kesavan, Scrum Master, LV=
- Ben Jones, Trainee Psychotherapist
- James Hayward, Showroom Manager at Peloton Interactive
