The Discovery Pod: Season 3, Episode 10

In Australia, the number of men dying by suicide is almost double the number of lives lost on our roads every year. 

But while we know to buckle up, observe speed limits, and keep our eyes on the road, there is a lot less certainty surrounding men’s mental health and what to do when things start going wrong....

So what changes do we need to make to our health system to ensure we’re offing men the help they need, when where and how they need it?

This week, host Professor Andy Lowe is in conversation with Professor Deborah Turnbull, the current Chair of Psychology at The University of Adelaide. Join us, as we have this important conversation about the potentially lifesaving improvements we can make to our health system.
