Globally suicide rates are extremely high but this is especially so in men, with statistics claiming 3 out of 4 suicides are men. We need to raise mental health awareness and make them aware that family, friends and community are available for support especially through more stressful times. Men are facing these tougher times silently and don’t need to.
Men need to be encouraged to seek help for anxiety, depression and stress and hopefully by doing this, we will target suicide prevention.
