Historic Parliamentary debate on male suicide secured on International Men’s Day

Press Releases   •   Nov 12, 2015 12:58 GMT

MPs to mark International Men’s Day (19th Nov) with inaugural Commons debate on male suicide. The move follows pressure by CALM to debate factors causing high male suicide rates. Suicide is the biggest single killer of men aged under 45. New poll finds 42% of men surveyed considered suicide. 49% didn't seek help 'cause they didn’t want people to worry, 43% didn’t want to talk about their feelings.
