Mind Your Language: How men talk about mental health
Male mental health is in crisis. Men make up just a third of referrals to NHS talking therapy services yet account for three-quarters of suicides. Something doesn’t add up.
How can services be made more relevant to men? Is part of the problem the language they use? How do men really talk about mental health?
This report draws on existing data and new research to begin to answer these key questions and take the first step towards identifying good practice.
