Dr. John Oliffe will be presenting “Unraveling Men’s Depression and Suicide: Commonwealth Connections” in a public lecture at the University of Melbourne on November 25, 2019 at 17:00 AEDT. The presentation will offer wide-ranging insights to Canadian men’s depression and suicide. Included will be Canadian suicide prevention policy updates and empirical insights to male depressive symptoms and the role of masculinity in men’s mental health help-seeking, treatment uptake and self-management. Community-based and e-health avenues for advancing the mental health of men and their families will also be shared through illustrative examples along with lessons learnt in delivering an array of diverse men’s programs. In mapping these, and other male depression and suicide related issues onto the Canadian context, panel respondents will discuss similarities and differences based on their Australian experiences as well as potential avenues for collaboration.
