Expressions of hope and resilience in the fight against men’s depression
JoinHeadsUpGuys this October 2015 for #BetterStartsHere, a month long campaign to raise awareness around men’s depression and support men’s efforts to lead healthier lives. Depression affects over 800,000 men every year in Canada, and is the second leading cause of disability worldwide.
To combat this, we are looking for men, their supporters, and artists to share what their better looks like on social media using the tag #BetterStartsHere. We will be resharing images and quotes throughout the month.
Kicking off the campaign is an image by B.C. based and award winning conceptual photographerJoel Robison. Joel’s mind-blowing photography has gathered nearly a quarter of a million fans onFacebook. He was hired by Coca Cola for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Tour to capture happiness in over 90 countries.
Joel will be creating a series of inspirational images for the campaign. The series is “centred around times and places that we start to feel better.” His works represent “that first step out the door, into the world again.”
Follow the campaign on HeadsUpGuys’ social media pages to see the rest of Joel’s images along with submissions from:
