A new public education campaign has been launched to encourage men to seek help early, and their family and friends to check in with them if they notice they aren’t going so well.

The Think Mental Health campaign (external link) is dedicated to improving the community’s mental health and wellbeing, with the first phase of the campaign targeting men aged 25 to 54 in recognition of their higher rates of death by suicide.

Things that we can do to offer support to those around us, include:

  • Checking in on a mate, or someone you care about if they're not going so well
  • Talking and listening are both powerful
  • Mental health issues can affect anyone.
