Zac Seidler is a registered psychologist and PhD candidate at The University of Sydney. Zac is the Lead Investigator on the Man Island Project, aiming to explore and improve men’s engagement in psychological treatment with the aim of reducing the staggering male suicide rate. His research so far has seen the first exploration into the factors influencing men’s help-seeking intention, uptake and engagement with mental health services. Zac has a keen interest in what keeps men coming back to treatment and how to adapt your practice to be gender-sensitive to achieve the best outcomes with hard to treat clients. In future, Man Island aims to develop and evaluate a training program for clinicians to improve their gender competence in practice. Zac is a consultant for a number of companies including Top Blokes who run groups for school-aged boys and has appeared in Vice and The Guardian for his work.
