Suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20 and 49 in the UK. It is a shocking truth but I wanted to understand why so many young men are killing themselves. I went to Liverpool to meet Jake Mills, a stand up comedian who has suffered from severe depression. Jake tried to take his own life. Fortunately, he survived and now campaigns to improve mental health care, and to get men talking about it, through his stand up routines and his charity, Chasing the Stigma.
