We know that 3/4 of suicides are male. Beat Stress (beatstress.uk) is an initiative from the Men’s Health Forum designed to intervene long before it gets to that point and when intervention is easier. It’s an anonymous online chat and email service using non-stigmatising language such as stress rather than heavier, loaded words such as mental health or depression. This video features guys just talking about what they do to beat stress. The dancer is the Beat Stress project manager Chris Stein and the music is Midnight by Vanilla, a UK-based hip hop and electronic producer. Big thanks to him.
On beatstress.uk itself there’s another really simple video on how to use the service.
