OUR MISSION

Bullet point

WHY

The Man Down Programme (MDP) was developed to help males or anyone who identifies as a male pronoun to have an honest and meaningful conversation about their mental well-being and experiences of distress or trauma.

Bullet point

WHAT

The MDP aims to look at men primarily working in the music industry.  There has been a significant increase in male suicide rates in the UK with males under 45 making up three quarters of those who die by suicide. Tentative research suggests that males who work in the music, media, culture and sports industry struggle with low mood and fleeting thoughts of self-harm this has seen suicide increase by 20% in these industries.

HOW

Through the MDP we aim to open up discussion, allow human emotion to be normalised but conversely look at the causation of distress. 

Bullet point

AIMS

  • To talk AND listen.

  • To normalise the feelings of distress and trauma in order to reduce the epidemic of ‘toxic masculinity’

  • Learn to identify risk factors that may lead to self-harm and suicidal behaviours.

  • Develop coping mechanisms and keeping safe tips.

  • Consider how identity affects men/males in this industry.
