One in eight adults experience suicidal thoughts or feelings because of concerns about their body image.
BBC Sport gathers together five young men for a series of honest conversations about what it's like to be a man in 2019, and the impact that can have on their mental health.
Journalist Ben Zand, sprinter James Ellington, footballers David Cox and Olu Maintain and reality TV star Josh Denzel talk about their own experiences and struggles in three films made for Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.
