About this event

Generali UK speaks with representatives from Vocational Rehabilitation expert Form Health and national charity Andy’s Man Club, about male mental health and suicide. Males aged 45 – 49 continue to have the highest suicide rate in England.(1) Globally, more than 700,000 people die to suicide every year and it is the fourth leading cause of death among 15 – 19 year olds.(2)

Andy’s Man Club was established by Luke Ambler, following the death of his brother-in-law Andy, who died by suicide in 2016. It has now grown to become one of the top suicide prevention charities in the UK.(3)

The discussion will include:

  • The story of Andy’s Man Club and the reality of male suicide in the UK.
  • The stigmas around Men’s Mental Health and what is expected of a man, including the power and importance of talking.
  • What employers could do better, including making best use of existing support and services in the workplace.
