Glasgow '14 casts light on the 'unseen' illness of male mental health, sufferers of which mostly continue to lead outwardly normal lives. The shows deals in particular with the 'masculine' habit of not talking about things, which has led to male mental health being ignored, with significant consequences. Whereas three out of four suicides (76%) are by men, and suicide is the biggest cause of death for men under35 (ONS), men have measurably lower access to the social support of friends, relatives and community (R.Boreham andD.Pevalin). "Despite the serious subject matter, the story is a hopeful one," said Neil Gwynne. "Sally's nuanced script draws some unexpected humour and pays tribute to the resilience of the people of Glasgow in the face of this traumatic incident."
