Keeping Young Men in Mind

This Men’s Health Week (12th-18th June) the Mental Health Coalition of SA are asking young men to stop and consider their mental health.

Orygen, the National Centre for Excellence in Youth Mental Health has released a major report revealing that young men are continuing to fall through the cracks of our mental health system.

Titled ‘Keeping It Real: Reimagining mental health care for all young men’, the report finds that although young males are almost three times as likely to die by suicide as young Australian females, only a small proportion of young men are accessing services, or receiving appropriate treatment for their mental ill-health.

Rather than continuing to offer more of the same in terms of service and treatment models for young men experiencing mental ill health, the report is calling for innovative new approaches to be developed and trialled, co-designed with young men themselves.
