Susie Bennett


My research explores how cultural and social ideas of masculinity and men's emotional lives, impact men's wellbeing, particularly in relation to male suicide - the biggest killer of men under 45. Suicide is an act born of emotional pain that seeks to terminate the existence of self in the world. I wanted to qualitatively explore why so many men in 21st century Britain are experiencing such levels of emotional distress, that they are choosing to terminate their selfhood. Previous to this Msc I've worked for the last 12 years in fundraising and communication roles within the charity sector including international conflict resolution and global disability rights organisations.
