Abstract: Depression and suicidal thoughts and behaviours are major public health problems affecting Australian males. This presentation will describe the magnitude of these problems, drawing on a range of epidemiological data sources. It will also consider some of the factors that place males at risk, including a reticence regarding help-seeking. Some specific activities to encourage help-seeking will also be explored.
