REAL STORIES, REAL STRUGGLES
Local heroes, community leaders, the mate that lives across the road. In a bid to tackle male suicide and the stigma surrounding men’s mental health, We Are Men is a community of real men talking about their real struggles. These men are opening up and discussing their mental health so other blokes can too, without the fear of shame or exclusion. It can be hard to ask for help but no man needs to struggle alone. Through our video stories, podcast, app and highlighting of local services, we hope to encourage all men to chat about what they’re going through and seek help.
Onlyhuman is an app featuring short films and evidence-based tasks to help you make a small change each day. Start looking after your wellbeing by creating simple habits of self-care by checking out the newest path specially designed for the needs and habits of men. Launching in May.
If you are in an emergency, or at immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, please contact emergency services on 000.

When talking about suicide, it is important that a number of factors are considered so that awareness can be spread safely while respecting those vulnerable and most at risk.
