The NSPCC has launched a campaign to encourage boys to seek support for issues and problems they face. The campaign, Tough to Talk, was created in part due to Childline data that found that boys were 6 times less likely than girls to talk to Childline counsellors about suicidal thoughts.

Over 2015/16 1,934 Childline counselling sessions were delivered to boys compared to 11,463 with girls. However, the suicide rate for boys aged 10-19 was more than double that for girls in the same period. A video supporting the campaign can be found here.  Read more here.
