Breaking the stigma around mental health

In the UK someone takes their life every 90 minutes.

Every year, more than 800,000 people die by suicide. Hector’s House created a series of films trying to encourage people to talk about their feelings, helping to break the stigma that surrounds mental health.

These films are ideal to use to open up dialogue about mental health.

The statistics:

  • 76% of all suicides in the UK are male
  • Suicide is the leading cause of death in men under the age of 50
  • Suicide is the leading cause of death in young people aged 20-34 in the UK
