Lara Brent, a BA (Hons) Fashion Journalism graduate from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) Epsom has designed a magazine to help break the stigma around men’s mental health. Created to offer advice, guidance and support to young male university students to help them feel less alone, the magazine is also accompanied by an online forum where readers can sign in and discuss their worries and concerns without judgement. Lara said “The inspiration behind PEPTALK came from my research into male mental health,” explained Lara. “The statistics around male suicide rates and mental illness are shocking, especially in young males – 76% of all suicides in the UK are male – so, I wanted to create something that would help combat this and offer men the support that they need.” Read more: https://bit.ly/30MUs1W #WeareUCA #MakersofUCA #MentalHealth #WorldMentalHealthDay #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #BeKind
