When Paul McGregor's dad tried to kill himself, it changed Paul's worldview forever. All his old certainties dissolved. Paul's dad recovered in hospital and went home, but then a few weeks later, he tried again. Paul's dad walked in front of a lorry and died instantly. Man Up Man... Down explores what it is to be a man in today's society. How do you cry, how do you express emotion, and how do you admit you're struggling when everything you've been taught tells you to man up and get on with it? Paul McGregor is a mental health advocate, author and Founder of a Men's Fashion Magazine. In 2009, Paul lost his Dad to suicide. It came as a shock to all as there were no warning signs, and at at 19, Paul personally struggled to deal with it. He overworked, chased success and distracted himself from the grief. So shortly after his Dad's suicide, Paul too found himself in a dark place, suffering with depression and fearing he'd follow in his Dad's footsteps. Luckily he found a way to recovery, and now runs a successful online men's fashion magazine. Paul has also been featured on GQ and The Huffington Post and creates daily content spreading awareness around mental health. Paul is a strong believer that we shouldn't be ashamed of our stories, we should let them inspire others. He's also married to his wonderful wife Amy, has two lovely children, but is still terrible at DIY.
