This publication was created to help state and community suicide prevention programs design and implement projects to prevent suicide among men in the middle years (ages 35-64). It includes a review of the research and recommendations that provide guidance for state and community suicide prevention programs on addressing suicide in this population, and an annotated list of programs and resources.
Man Therapy is a tool designed to help men with their mental health. It uses humor and media to connect men and their families to facts, resources, and help in grappling with ongoing negative emotions.
When we think about men in midlife, we may see them as independent and able to take care of themselves. Yet men in the middle years – between the ages of 35 and 64 – have a suicide rate that is more than double the national average, says psychiatrist Jeff Sung. What’s more, many men at risk of suicide will not seek conventional mental health treatment. We need to figure out what works for men and change the life trajectory of men who are at risk of suicide.
