The exhibit shows photographs taken by men and women of different ages and backgrounds who have been affected by male suicide. Their photographs and narratives will be exhibited across Canada as a means of de-stigmatizing men’s mental illness and raising awareness about men’s suicide.
Man-Up Against Suicide, led by UBC professor John Oliffe, is one of five projects conducted within the Men’s Depression & Suicide Network (MD&S-Net), funded by Movember Canada. MD&S-Net develops, implements and formally evaluates innovative interventions focused on men’s depression and suicide prevention.
