Suicide is again being examined publicly in both the Senate Inquiry into  Suicide by veterans and ex-service personnel and the ABC TV  Program ‘Man Up

The Senate inquiry ,championed by Jacqui Lambie,  has been referred to the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committee for inquiry and report by 30 March 2017: Submissions have been received and can be seen here.

Man Up is a national conversation about Aussie male suicide.

“Harden up. Suck it up. Man up. We’ve been telling our men this for years, but is it healthy? Suicide is now the leading cause of death for Australian men aged 15-44. And alarming new research suggests that some men choose to take their own life, rather than appear weak by asking for help. Man Up is a three-part documentary series and social awareness campaign, hosted by Triple M radio personality Gus Worland, which aims to get to the bottom of the male suicide crisis, effect real social change and hopefully even save lives. 

The ABC series Man Up joins the website to form a wider social campaign that aims to encourage conversation and awareness across the wider community. Make sure to check it out. Weigh in on the conversation #ABCManUp

Don’t Give Up…  Listen to the song.
