Brighton on the Inside presents: Brighton & Hove screening of “Steve” and panel talk.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. 12 men a day. 1 every 2 hours.
One of those men was Steve Yates. But Steve was more than a number. He was a father, a son, a brother, and a friend. Director Ben Akers’ childhood best friend.
In this 90 minute Documentary Ben goes on a mission to look at why suicide is happening. And what men can do to help themselves.
He begins by talking to Steve’s family, health professionals and ordinary men who are suffering - often in silence.
From there he explores the solutions with people who are using their experiences to create positive change.
In this confronting and raw film, the film-makers want to help men (and their families) understand that it’s ok to not be ok, and discuss the ways we can all help ourselves to be mentally fit.
