Participate in rural men’s mental health research

Changing rural masculinities and mental wellness: A Prairie case study

Researchers at Brandon University are undertaking a two-year research project to understand men’s experiences of stress in the changing Westman Region. The project seeks to address growing mental health concerns in the Canadian Prairies, where rates of completed suicide are the highest outside the territorial north and higher among men than women. In general, men are less likely to talk about, and seek support for, their mental health needs than women and this is particularly the case in rural Canada. Addressing this issue requires a better understanding of how and where men experience stress, how they cope, and how they can express their mental health challenges. We are looking for men to share their experiences.BU – Mental Health Poster 279951 (2)
