Work in Progress is a UK-wide campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the challenges to employment faced by people with depression and drive policy initiatives that support improved outcomes across the UK. It is supported by partners across the UK - Depression Alliance, Action on Depression, Gofal and AWARE. The campaign is sponsored by Lundbeck within the guidance of the ABPI code of practice.
We are in the middle of a male suicide epidemic. That may sound sensationalist but it’s true. In 2014, male suicide in the UK reached a 15-year high, with over three quarters of all instances of suicide being men. This trend is universal too. In 2012 the World Health Organisation collected suicide data from 174 countries. Out of those 174 countries, men took their lives at a higher rate than women in all but five: Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Iraq and Pakistan.
