World Mental Health Day FB

On World Mental Health Day we are thinking about men's mental health. According to the Mental Health Foundation:

  • Three times as many men as women die by suicide
  • Men aged 40 to 49 have the highest suicide rates in the UK
  • Men report lower levels of life satisfaction than women, according to the Government’s national well-being survey
  • Men are less likely to access psychological therapies than women: only 36% of referrals to NHS talking therapies are for men

There are many resources available to men who might need help. Check out:

Of course Samaritans are always there for anyone who needs to talk and Mind has resources for everyone.
