This module aims to assist readers in their understanding of mental health promotion in general, and specifically in relation to men's mental health, and the risk of suicide.

Health promotion is essential to improve the health status and quality of life of individuals. Promoting mental health at an individual, community and policy level is central to reducing the incidence of mental health problems, including self-harm and suicide. Men may be particularly vulnerable to mental health problems, in part because they are less likely to seek help from healthcare professionals. Although this learning module discusses mental health promotion and related strategies in general, the focus is on men's mental health.
