Adult Male Suicide Prevention Initiative in Australia

Australia's The Age reports here that a dialogue has begun on the need for prevention programs for adult men, who commit suicide at much higher rates than boys. The biggest event linked to older men taking their own life is a divorce, especially when they lose contact with their children. The article is very well balanced and raises a number of important points. Among them is the implication that advocating for men's contact with children after divorce could be part of a prevention program. Source: The Age [Australian newspaper]
