This morning on the show, Tanya & Steve spoke to Beyond Blue’s Lead Clinical Advisor at Beyond Blue, Dr Grant Blashki, on how to talk about mental health with your mates.

On average, one in eight men will experience depression and one in five men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives.

Men make up an average six out of every eight suicides every single day in Australia. The number of men who die by suicide in Australia every year is nearly double the national road toll.

Dr Grant Blashki gave some great advice on how to start the conversation with a guy in your life who might be struggling. 

If you’re struggling, you can call Beyond Blue on 1300 22 46 36 or download the app ‘Beyond now’
