Spotlight on men's mental health and suicide prevention

Throughout June, Life in Mind shined a spotlight on men's mental health and wellbeing, specifically the services, organisations, programs, research and resources which exist to support men and boys in the prevention of suicide and mental ill-health across the lifespan.

This was in coordination with the month-long event series hosted by the Australian Men's Health Forum (AMHF), "Men's Health Connected' which provided access to the leading minds, research and communities working to support men's health nationally. 

Importantly, the AMHF event series coincided with Men's Health Week from 15 - 21 June 2020. 

The Life in Mind team worked to develop this page as a collection of knowledge from across the Australian mental health and suicide prevention sector. Below is an outline of some of the resources available that support male suicide prevention and aim to improve the mental health and wellbeing of men. Including:

  • Organisations that focus or have particular interests in male suicide prevention or mental health
  • Training to support males in suicide prevention or mental ill-health
  • Programs, services and resources that have been developed to improve knowledge and provide support around male suicide prevention and men.
