Mental health and Harry’s
Supporting men's mental health is at the heart of what we do. Mental health is an issue that disproportionately impacts men, in part due to the outdated expectations around what it means to be a “man”. In the past few years, we’ve given over $10million globally to organisations that provide mental health support to men.
Understanding the mental health crisis
Since we launched in 2017, we have worked with UCL and mental health experts to conduct research to gain a better understanding of how men feel. This year, we have run a new masculinity report to discover the prevailing attitudes and beliefs of 2000 British men on masculinity.
