International Men’s Day 2019

International Men’s Day is an opportunity to share positive contributions and raise awareness for issues related to men around the world. We don’t like to talk about it much, but suicide is one of the leading causes of death, disease, and injury among men globally – in fact (per the article) suicide is the top killer of men under the age of 45.

But the stigma around #mentalhealth and #suicideprevention persists – according to a recent survey, only 31% of males claimed to be willing to discuss their feelings with another person.

If you or someone you care about is in crisis, please seek help immediately:

Call 911(US), 999(UK), 112(EU), 119(JP)

Visit a nearby emergency department or your health care provider’s office.

In the US Call the toll-free, 24-hour hotline of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255); TTY: 1-800-799-4TTY (4889) to talk to a trained counselor.
