ABOUT THE EVENT /
Join us at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel, for a screening of this life changing documentary.
Suicide relating to Mental Health is one of the biggest killers in the UK.
One of those men was Steve Yates. But Steve was more than a number,
he was a father, a son, a brother, and a friend.
Director Ben Akers’s childhood best friend.
In this 60 minute Documentary Ben goes on a mission to look at why this is happening.
And what men can do to help themselves.
He begins by talking to Steve’s family, health professionals and ordinary men who are suffering - often in silence.
From there he explores the solutions with people who are using their experiences to create positive change.
In this confronting and raw film, the film-makers want to help Men, Women (and their families) understand that it’s ok to not be ok, and discuss the ways we can all help ourselves to be mentally fit.
Ultimately, this film of hope, trying to push us all on from Mental HealthAwareness to Mental Health Action.
The film will conclude with a Q&A with the maker.
