    Project Details


    This projects aim is to evaluate the effect of a mental health help-seeking intervention tailored for young men in school years 7-12 known as the Silence is Deadly campaign. This intervention aims to minimise attitudinal barriers of self-reliance, reduce self-stigmatizing perceptions of failure and normalize help-seeking in young men through male role models who portray help-seeking as normal irrespective of the severity of the issues. Our project aims to determine the effectiveness of this tailored approach and importantly whether it is differentially effective on participants with different levels of mental health symptoms, suicidal thoughts and stigmatizing attitudes.
