The Men’s Depression and Suicide Network at UBC, in partnership with the Movember Foundation, is proud to announce the launch of HeadsUpGuys, Canada’s first online depression resource specifically targeting men.
This resource was developed by a team of clinicians and researchers led by Dr. John Ogrodniczuk, a Professor and Director of the Psychotherapy Program in the Department of Psychiatry at UBC.
“We look at the web site as a place where men can kick-start their recovery from depression,” says Dr. Ogrodniczuk. “It’s designed to equip men with the knowledge needed to prevent, manage, and rebound from depression and suicidal thoughts.”
HeadsUpGuys features practical tips, advice, and guidance on how to recover from depression. This online resource also includes a tool for users to help them get a quick check on their symptoms, which they can then share with a health care professional.
