MANUP? Announces Innovative Webinar on Male Suicide Risk and Recovery

Leading male mental health charity MANUP? is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar featuring Dr Susie Bennett, who has recently completed a four-year PhD focused on male suicide risk and recovery factors.

Male suicide is a public health crisis. In the UK, it continues to be the leading cause of death for men under 50. In 2022, an alarming three-quarters of all suicide deaths were male. Despite these staggering statistics, there has been limited comprehensive research on why men are at such high risk and how to effectively support them.

This event promises to deliver invaluable insights and practical strategies for anyone looking to better understand and support men in crisis.

The webinar will take place on Thursday 18 July at 18:15 and will be held via Zoom. It is completely free to join, and an interactive Q&A session will follow the presentation.

During this enlightening webinar, Dr Susie Bennett will share key findings from her extensive research. The discussion will cover crucial topics such as the impact of societal pressures and expectations on men’s mental health, how loneliness and feelings of failure contribute to male suicide risk, understanding emotional pain and help-seeking experiences, the influence of childhood challenges on men’s mental health, and practical ways to better support men in crisis, focusing on addressing the empathy gap in societal responses.

MANUP? is proud to support Dr Bennett’s ongoing research, which aims to uncover the underlying factors contributing to male suicide and develop effective recovery strategies. By attending this webinar, participants will gain valuable knowledge and contribute to the continued funding and advancement of this essential research.

Those interested in joining this vital conversation can fill out the registration form with their name, address, and email. Upon registration, a Zoom link to attend the webinar will be sent to access the session on the scheduled date.
