About the Project
stay is the collection of narratives, photographs, videos, and exhibits that were created as part of the Man-Up Against Suicide Project. We collected photos and narratives from 80 Canadian men and women. In sharing perspectives about male suicide, this project aims to de-stigmatize men's mental illness and lobby targeted male suicide prevention programs. Man-Up Against Suicide has been displayed in the UK and across Canada with 12 exhibitions to date.
