Tip of the iceberg: Getting mental health support to more men

Studies show that men are less likely than women to seek support for their mental health.

In a 2019 study conducted by the charity Mind1, 35% of men said they would seek support from their doctor if they felt low. While this number is rising (up 12% from 2009), how can we do more to reach the remaining 65% of the male population?

Our partners at Movember support research to understand what works when engaging men in mental health support – and put these findings into action through their funded programs and initiatives.

Watch the on-demand webinar to understand what they have learned through their work, and what transferable insight we can apply to mental health support services and promotion to increase engagement with men.
