This reports on findings from a national study combining multiple sources of information that provide a detailed account from families, friends and professionals on the stresses men in their mid-life face before they take their lives.
The study provides rich data on the adversities middle-aged men were facing prior to their death, that we hope will help inform policy, public health strategies, and safer practice in all front-line agencies, including the identification of barriers to accessing services, and ultimately reduce suicide rates.
