Dr Kylie King

Dr Kylie King is a Senior Research Fellow at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health at Monash University. She is particularly interested in the capacity for public health interventions to meet boys and men in the places they learn, work and live to bring about positive impacts for mental health and suicidality. She was a key researcher on the Man Up project that explored the potential for a media-based intervention to have a positive impact on men’s help-seeking with the aim of reducing suicide risk. She has led research to understand the suicidality of men aged over 85 - who experience the highest rate of any age or gender group in Australia. She is also leading an evaluation of Tomorrow Man’s Breaking the Man Code workshops with adolescent boys in schools, and an evaluation of Incolink’s workplace suicide prevention training and peer support program for workers in the male dominated construction industry. Dr King co-founded the International Association for Suicide Prevention’s Special Interest Group in Suicide Prevention for Boys and Men to help make male suicide a global priority for research. With 35 peer-reviewed publications, 40 commissioned reports, and over 30 presentations to local and international audiences, Dr King is an emerging leader in boys and men’s suicide prevention research.
