We are currently developing a new verbatim project about men who have been affected by mental health issues and, either directly or indirectly, have been affected by suicide - and we are looking for people to talk to.
Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 and 76% of all suicides in the UK in 2014 were men.
The highest suicide rate in the UK in 2014 was for men aged 45-49. (Samaritans Annual Report 2016).
With campaigns such as Andy’s Man Club’s #itsokaytotalk, TheLadbible Group’s “UOKM8?” and the NHS and YMCA campaign #iamwhole, along with the work being done by CALM, Mind, Samaritans, The Mental Health Foundation, National Suicide Prevention Alliance and many more, we are joining in the conversation and fight to break down the stigmas surrounding mental health problems.
We are currently looking for people to talk to!
If you are a man or a family that has been affected by suicide or mental health and would like to tell us your story, please use the form on this page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snippet is committed to raising people’s voices and to bring your experiences to the stage. We look forward to hearing from you!
