Ryan's inclusive flagship talk that combines science, stories and strategies with a simple evidence-based framework to improve mental health in the men you care about.

Why book a Talk on Male Mental Health? You may know that 3 out of every 4 deaths by suicide in the UK and Ireland are men. But did you also know that:

  • Leading suicide prevention charities are warning that current mental health support offered to men in crisis does not address the specific factors that are linked to thoughts of suicide in men?
  • Between 2010 and 2022, the average man in the UK became 50% more likely to attend talking therapy, and 11% more likely to die by suicide?
  • The most effective, proven treatment for depression is not routinely discussed with men who are suffering from depression?
