The Work Foundation has published its latest report: Men’s mental health and work: The case for a gendered approach to policy.
Men’s and women’s health differs in a number of ways. These differences are created and reinforced by the type of work that men and women typically do. Men, for example, are more likely to do physically dangerous work. Furthermore, male-dominated sectors, such as construction, have disproportionately high rates of suicide. In many cases, exposure to these risks conspires with men’s apparent reticence to engage with health services.
