This month Intensions Consulting and Men's Health Research published an important new article in the Community Mental Health Journal titled, 'Stigma in Male Depression and Suicide: A Canadian Sex Comparison Study'.
Co-authored by seven experts including Dr. John Oliffe, Professor of Nursing at the University of British Columbia, and Dr. John Ogrodniczuk, Professor of Psychotherapy at the University of British Columbia, the article explored findings from our recent Canadian study on adult beliefs concerning male depression and suicide.
This quantitative study (n=901) was the first in Canada to examine stigma toward men with depression and men who suicide. To quote from the article, "given that a greater proportion of male respondents tended to endorse stigmatizing views of male depression and suicide, there is a need for health messaging and programs to target men in gender-sensitive and specific ways."
