Male Suicide

I covered a story this week that really needs highlighting. Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45. According to the latest figures fifteen men out of every one hundred thousand living in our region took their own lives in 2017. That's compared with five women in every one hundred thousand. I filmed with two very inspiring groups made up of men who are working together to help themselves deal with mental health issues, Get Fit for Mental Health and Men Up North.
