Men die by suicide 3.5 times more often than women, and, as a country, we lose 22 veterans a day to suicide. However, talking about mental health — particularly for men — can still be challenging and is surrounded by stigma.
Several years ago, razor brand Harry’s decided to focus their social impact efforts specifically on men’s mental health. In this episode of Cause Talk Radio, Megan speaks to Harry’s head of social impact, Maggie Hureau, about that journey.
The two talk about Harry’s 1% model (in which they direct 1% of sales to charitable organizations), the soul-searching they had to do around adopting men’s mental health as their signature cause, how they’ve focused efforts to serve black men specifically, and the complexities that COVID has brought to this initiative.
