What Men Really Think About… The Black Dog

Men and women both suffer depression, but men experience it differently. They’re less likely to acknowledge it and more likely to seek comfort at the bottom of a beer glass, or other unhelpful places.

In ‘What Men Really Think About…’, we slide behind the stereotypes to take an honest look at the issues men face in contemporary Australia. Hosted by Kim Farrant, this edition features guests Russell Robertson, Ian Jones and Nicholas Brien.
