Survey on mental health of men

16:00, Mar 10 2014

Blokes of all ages and backgrounds are needed for a new wellbeing project.

The Mental Health Foundation is looking at how men access and use information to support themselves during stressful life events.

Chief executive Judi Clements says research shows that many men don't seek information and support when needed and that can have a big impact.

Men will be asked to complete a short online survey, which has questions about work, friendships and the way they use information and support services.

Focus groups will also be set up during April, which will give men the chance to share their thoughts with peers and researchers.

The project's findings will be used to help the Mental Health Foundation and other organisations target their information and better support men going through a tough time.

"We strongly encourage men to take the survey and join a focus group."
