TW: This episode discusses mental health, suicide and graphic real-life events that might be difficult to hear. Please switch off if you’re not able to listen.

In the UK, suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45. We need to talk about male suicide and mental health, and how we can support the men in our lives and in society as a whole!

To have this discussion with me, I’m bringing my first male guest onto the podcast. Andy Elwood is a Wellbeing campaigner & Mental Health First Aider. His content focuses on reaching out to men and letting them know #itsoktotalk

If you or someone you know is personally affected by the issues discussed today, please refer to the following help and support resources.
