What do they do?

MenTalkHealth works to get men talking about mental health for the benefit of everyone.

They do this by sharing lived experiences and conversations from a range of people who have a story to share. They share the honesty, the humour, and the challenges in order to show others that these conversations do not have to be hidden. They promote conversations in the hope that they can tackle the stigma that prevents men finding help before it’s too late.

They create content, provide training, and host events open to everyone.

Why do they do it?

Rates of suicide are much higher in men than in women, and men are less likely to have reached out to mental health services, or friends and family, before taking their own life. There are many factors to consider, but MenTalkHealth believes the expectation and stereotypes of masculinity – what society dictates what it means to be a “man” – plays a huge part in these numbers.

Challenging these expectations of what a man should be, while encouraging conversations earlier means men might reach out for support before crisis.
