beyondblue work with men


Australian men generally have lower rates of mental health literacy, help-seeking behaviour and face numerous barriers to help-seeking, such as stigma. In Australia, men account for 75 per cent of deaths by suicide.


Men are encouraged to take action against depression, anxiety and suicide, and to reduce stigma through a collaborative approach to programs, knowledge building and policy.





Beyond Barriers


Between 2012 and 2014 beyondblue implemented the Beyond Barriers Strategy to encourage men to take action against anxiety and depression through reducing barriers to seeking support.
