Women and Equalities Committee: Mental health of men and boys
Business Disability Forum is a not-for-profit membership organisation which exists to transform the life chances of disabled people. We do this by bringing business leaders, disabled people, and Government together to understand what needs to change to improve the life opportunities and experiences of disabled people in employment, economic growth, and society more widely.
We conducted interviews and a Twitter Chat with men from employee mental health networks and individuals with a mental health condition to ask men about their perceptions of and experiences of mental ill health. We have used insight from these research activities to inform this submission. The perspectives given in this submission are therefore from this cohort only. The insights included are therefore not a comparison between women and men’s experiences; they are the voices of men only.
