A national study to investigate suicide by middle-aged men

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.

The findings described in this study do not cover deaths that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
