Headspace Fathers Campaign
87% of young men don’t seek help when experiencing mental health issues.
Young men suffer some the most serious of mental health issues than any other group in Australia, which tens of thousands suffer in silence rather than seeking help. The stigma of talking about mental health issues that surrounds young men is a nation-wide concern.
Dads can play a vital role in identifying the early signs and helping to provide young people with the support they need if they’re going through a tough time. However, Dads are often unsure on how to start these conversations and what services are available to help young people who are experiencing mental health issues.
