ManHealth - March for Men-tal Health

 

Too many of our men are dying too young

 

  • Just over three out of four suicides (76%) are by men and suicide is the biggest cause of death for men under 35 (Reference: ONS) 
  • The North East had the highest suicide rate in England and Wales during 2020
  • 13 men a day take their own lives 12.5% of men in the UK are suffering from one of the common mental health disorders
  • Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under 50.

 

From April 13 to April 18 2022 a team of men from ManHealth are walking over 130 miles in 5 Days to raise awareness of Men’s Mental Health in the North East. The men who all struggle with mental health conditions have benefitted from using the peer support groups and other services of ManHealth and are looking to raise awareness of the crisis in men’s mental health.
