84SilenceNoMore – Addressing Male Suicide Rates – Safeguarding Matters

84SilenceNoMore Male Suicide Rates

Lisa chats with Samyak Jain about his 84SilenceNoMore project, which addresses male suicide rates.

Samyak helped set up the 84SilenceNoMore project while still at secondary school. Having learned that 84 men a week lose their lives to suicide, Samyak and his friends decided to do something.

The result was 84SilenceNoMore. The mission is to raise awareness of mental health issues. They also aim to raise money for CALM with a sponsored run and other activities.

In this podcast he talks to ACT’s Deputy CEO Lisa Curtis about the project, while sharing some of the things he’s learned about safeguarding your own mental health while looking out for your friends.
