One of the major issues with men’s mental health is the potential that the statistics regarding instances are inaccurate, for a number of reasons. Firstly, in many cultures, males are meant to fulfil a ‘manly’ role, and by taking on this role, any admission that they need help with mental health issues is (incorrectly) seen as a sign of weakness. In 2013 a UK survey found that, in those over the age of 15 years old, 78% of suicides were male. If you are suffering from suicidal thoughts, or believe you know somebody who is suffering, then please seek medical advice immediately.
