Man Up: Part 2 – How do men battle against depression & suicidal thoughts? | BBC Sport


With one man attempting to take their own life every two minutes in the UK, suicide isn’t as rare as we may think.

BBC Sport gathers together five young men for a series of honest conversations about what it’s like to be a man in 2019, and the impact that can have on their mental health.

Journalist Ben Zand, sprinter James Ellington, footballers David Cox and Olu Maintain and reality TV star Josh Denzel talk about their own experiences and struggles in three films made for Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.

Episode two sees them honestly and openly discuss their experiences and personal battles with depression and suicidal thoughts.
