We laid out shoes in locations around the world to represent lives lost to suicide, and set ambitious goals to reduce the suicide rate.

Turning the tide on male suicide

On mornings around the world, on Bondi Beach in Sydney, Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Irish Parliament in Dublin, Potter’s Field in London, Central Park in New York, Venice Beach in Los Angeles and Sergels Torg in Stockholm, we laid out thousands of shoes to represent the men who die by suicide each month.

Saturday, November 19th, was International Men’s Day. We live in a world where 3 out of 4 suicides are men, and the numbers are rising. Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing this health crisis. We can’t afford to stay silent: we need to take action.

That’s why we fund game-changing projects in mental health and suicide prevention. We’re using our global reach to find innovative approaches to this complex issue. We’re committed to encouraging men to talk, seek help and take action. Now we’re stepping up with a big goal: by 2030, we’ll reduce the rate of male suicide by 25%. We can’t do it without you.

This Giving Tuesday, help us change the narrative of male suicide in the United States and around the world. 

Help us stop men dying too young
