“Man Up” Documentary – Breaking the silence on 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 (pictured), which aims to get to the bottom of the male suicide crisis, effect real social change and hopefully even save lives. Man Up is a documentary made possible with funding from Movember.

The first episode airs on Tuesday 11th October at 8:30pm on ABC TV and iview with subsequent episodes on Tuesday 18th and Tuesday 25th October.
