Did you know; 1 in every 4 men that call the Samaritans are experiencing loneliness and a staggering 20 per cent of these, talk about suicide attempts!
Professor Louis Appleby, chair of the National Suicide Prevention Advisory Group said:
“Men are more at risk of suicide because they are more likely to drink heavily, use self-harm methods that are more often fatal and are reluctant to seek help. Fifteen years ago the rates among men under 35 were brought down sharply by tackling these problems and we need to use this success to address the problems of the new highest risk group, middle aged men.
“We need to make it easier for men to find help without shame or stigma.”
This Tuesday on the Rinse Talk Show, we will be discussing male suicide!
Join me (Sherryl Blu) and 2 volunteers from the Samaritans between 7-10pm.
