News launches men’s mental health campaign to stop ‘the silent killer’ is encouraging men to communicate with one another, family and friends, as part of a four-week mental health campaign.

From today, will seek to shed light on the mental health issues that men face by producing editorial and video content related to the issues.

The campaign will run over the next four weeks

The campaign, ‘The Silent Killer: Let’s Make Some Noise’, will also support the work of Gotcha4Life, an organisation started by Gus Worland and Gareth Pike, and Movember.

Two articles have already appeared on the site, one talking about where men can turn for help and the other detailing Hit Network’s drive show host, Dave Hughes and his struggle with mental health. editor in chief Kate de Brito said wanted to leverage its audience of more than 9.5m to encourage positive change.

“We are raising awareness about men’s mental health not because women’s mental health doesn’t matter, but because of the stark gender imbalance in suicide rates and experts who believe men could be helped if they had better targeted support,” de Brito said.

“Crisis services are doing their best however some believe we must begin to focus the way they deal with men and women differently in order to reach the men who so desperately need help but are afraid to reach out.”
