75% of suicides in Australia are men and it is the leading cause of death in men aged between 18 and 44.

Movember is a popular annual event where men around the world start letting their mo's grow - the aim of which is to raise awareness and funds towards men's health issues, with mental health being one of the main critical areas.


Mental health awareness is on the rise and as a result, so is awareness of the impact a negative workplace culture and a lack of psychological support can have on productivity and employee satisfaction. 


 Recent studies have shown 30% of men don't open up about their mental health concerns in case it has a negative impact on their career


 Suicide is the most common cause of death for men aged between 18 and 44


Actevate provided confidential EAP counselling services to over 30 companies within the last 12 months alone, and our records show only 32% of which were requested by male employees.
