This conference focuses on the important issue of improving mental health services for men, delivering 'male friendly" and culturally sensitive services to the specific requirements of different groups of men and boys.  The conference opens with a national update on how to make mental health services work for men and continues with an extended session on mental health promotion and early intervention, including the important link between mental health and employment services.

"Suicide is the single biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK, and accounts for 76% of all suicides in the UK (2014)”  

The second half of the day continues with practical case studies illustrating best practice and innovation in delivering effective mental health programmes for men including peer support, sports programmes, perinatal mental  health services for men, and psychological therapies. The conference concludes with a focus on reducing male suicide looking at local programmes, and learning from the national zero suicide collaboratives.
