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 a hard subject 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 Maggie Hureau, Head of Social Impact for Harry’s 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.
