Last year, the 35-year-old actor opened up about his real life experience with mental health for the first time in an interview with Daily Mail Australia.
Speaking about his difficult past, Jake revealed he had a number of friends who struggled with depression and one who ultimately took his own life.
"I think it's such a major problem for young men dealing with depression in society. A lot of people do suffer from it," he said.
Jake noted the social stigma surrounding mental health is fading, saying: "[It] definitely seems like it's improved since I was in my twenties."
Jake previously partnered with Georgia Love, Michael Klim and Olympia Valance on a campaign for Polished Man, an organisation that works to improve mental health in young people and protect children against domestic violence.
The Home and Away favourite said he signed up because of his beloved nephews, who he regularly dotes over on Instagram.
"They're almost like some of my best friends," he said of his nephews.
In May, the TV heartthrob revealed he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Alice Quiddington.
The couple, who started dating earlier this year, shared the exciting news on Instagram.
