Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.12 men a day. One every 2 hours. One of those men was Ben Akers’ childhood best friend, Steve.

This documentary follows Ben’s journey as he channels his own grief to try and help all men understand and respect their mental health. His mission takes him up and down the country, first to talk to Steve’s family, then to meet health professionals in the industry, and finally, to meet 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.

Director: Ben Akers.
Producers: Claire Wilkinson | Neil Harrison.
