Men’s Mental Health Week
1 in 2 Australian men have had a mental health problem at some stage in their life. However, statistics have shown that men are far less likely than women to seek help. This week is men’s health week – a campaign that aims to open the conversation around wellbeing for men across the nation. Xavier Eales knows first hand how hard it can be, speaking up about his own struggle with depression in his school captains speech a few years ago. The video went viral on YouTube, hitting home for many and inspiring discussion surrounding mental wellbeing. Tess chats with Xavier about what mental health can mean to young men.
