Adam's Story:
"As a man suffering from depression, I can completely understand the stigma that surrounds men getting help for issues with mental health, but I feel strongly that this doesn't have to be the case. In 2014, male suicides accounted for 75% of all suicides in the UK. I know there are many reasons a person may feel that suicide is their only option. Many aren't as lucky as I am, many don’t have the support system I am grateful for.
I have suffered from depression and anxiety for over a year now, at first, I felt so alone and the pressure in my life felt like chains were wrapped around my shoulders pulling me down. I kept my emotions bottled up.
It was my 3-year-old son who reached through to me, when he looked into my eyes and said three words that changed my view on life totally, the words ‘I love you' changed everything! From the way I felt right then, to the way I look at the negative and positive points in my life.
I have so many people around to love and support me and from that day, I vowed to myself to talk about problems with my partner and parents which was possibly the hardest thing I have had to do - to see their emotion come to the surface when I talk about mental health.
Having experienced this first hand I feel very passionately about this topic and I'm determined to help other people find the courage to speak out. To encourage people to open up, whether it's to friends, family members or a helpline. A lot of the time this helps people feel more confident in themselves and can mean that they're less likely to feel isolated and alone.
Encouraging men to talk about all aspects of their health is important because often, men's health gets forgotten about or put off. I urge anyone who suffers with their mental health not to stay quiet and find the courage within themselves to speak to somebody. Mental Health isn't as simple as just getting better, it takes time and patience to move forward.
As for me I am currently seeing a counsellor about my mental health issues and discussing how I’m feeling. Talking about my feelings and opening up to a professional is like a weight off my chest and it's a great knowing that I’m not alone through this tough part of my life. I would encourage others to try speaking to a professional, especially if you are struggling to tell family and friends.
You're never alone in life and there's always a way to understand your problems, and every single man who is suffering from mental health and is afraid to speak out, you have my full support and belief that you can get through the illness and can get back on track to a better life."

"I mean I could grow a moustache, but why should I?"
Movember are the only charity tackling men’s health globally every day of the year. The charity formed in Australia in 2003 and has grown all over the world. Movember Foundation funds ground-breaking programs, investing in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention that aim to stop men dying too young.
Through growing a moustache and raising funds you’re not only helping Movember fund vital research and reduce the number of men dying too young, you’re also raising awareness through generating meaningful conversations about men’s health.
You don’t even have to grow a mo, you could:
• Move for Movember. Set a distance goal and walk, run, swim, cycle or row your way to achieving it. It’s not about being the fittest or the fastest, it’s about having fun, doing good and raising funds along the way.
• Host an event like a pub quiz, or a football tournament, or whatever takes your fancy
• Simply donate to the Hull team
