Statistics have shown the number of male suicides doubling that of women in Singapore. From the 400 suicide cases recorded in 2019 from the Suicide prevention service–Samaritans of Singapore(SOS), two out of three people were male.
Females have been dismantling their biological gender from the perceived feminine roles, it is also time for men to redefine masculinity.
A progressive masculinity can help to create a safer community. This is why we need Genie. Genie is a non-profit organisation, advocating gender equality and working to unlearn social concepts of masculinity, through research, education, training programmes and specialised support for boys and men towards mental health.
