MAN UP

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between 15 and 44 years of age. Young Australians are more likely to take their own life than die in motor vehicle accidents. In 2017, 75% of people who died by suicide were males. This contemporary short film is all about changing the conversation around men’s mental health and raising awareness for suicide prevention.
