Mental Health Awareness Film Screening
Thu 12 September
Join us for a screening of this life changing documentary Steve.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. 12 men a day. 1 every 2 hours.
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 90 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 (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 Health Awareness to Mental Health Action.
The screening will conclude with a Q&A with the maker and positive chats about how all men can help themselves to good mental health.
