Is it healthy to ‘Man Up’?

For Australian boys & men, the traditional attitude to ‘man up’, ‘harden up’ & ‘suck it up’ must – in 2020 – be seen as unhelpful, unhealthy & unacceptable. Society has been telling boys & men this for years, but is it healthy?

Suicide is now the leading cause of death for Australian men aged 15-44, & alarming new research suggests that some men choose to take their own life, rather than appear weak by asking for help.

There’s no more urgent time than now to reassess those ideals & stereotypes.

Man Up is an important three-part documentary series & social awareness campaign funded by the Movember Foundation & hosted by Triple M radio personality Gus Worland.

It aims to get to the bottom of the male suicide crisis, effect real social change and hopefully even save lives. It’s certainly not easy viewing but after watching the
3 episodes you’ll be in a great place to start the conversation and create change.

For yourself & for the men in our lives.

WARNING: Some scenes may distress certain viewers.
