"The Mask You Live In"

It can be tough growing up as a boy in Australia. The number one killer of young males here is suicide. Two of my brothers committed suicide. I came close as a teenager, but held out to see what one more day would bring. I kept doing that, one day at a time, until I found a life that made sense to me.

Here's a short film that talks about the problem from an American perspective. It was made by The Representation Project.

This film is mind-blowing. I thought I was already sensitive to men's issues but clearly I had no idea. A masterful production, I cannot believe my life view has been changed in 3 minutes.
