Professor Jacob Høigilt and psychology student Andres Øverbø, will discuss why men are less willing than women to seek help when they experience mental health issues. How do they relate to mental health and what can we do to get men to talk more about these issues and seek help when needed. 

Frode Helland, dean of the Faculty of Humanities, will moderate the discussion.
