Ep 273: Rise Against Suicide with Humen and River Hawkins

Nov 28, 2022, 06:00 AM

Mick Coyle is joined by founder of Humen, River Hawkins.

River's speaking to us ahead of the Rise Against Suicide pub pilgrimages across 13 cities on Dec 4th, to raise awareness of men's mental health and suicide.

The conversation explores men's attitudes to discussing mental health

River shares his own personal journey, as well as talking about why it's important that communities create spaces where people can share their stories without stigma or judgment.
