This powerful film gives a rare glimpse of what we rarely get to hear - the actual words of men who've gone through depression and suicidal thoughts.
"The thing most likely to kill me is me." If you're a man under 45 and said this, you'd be right. Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Yet it's so often left unsaid.
We know that men can sometimes mute their true feelings. And we know the cost of their silence.
This World Suicide Prevention Day, don't leave it unsaid. Share the film. #WSPD16 #malesuicide
