Divorce Increases Risk Of Suicide In Men

Ed Bartlett from MHA forwarded me this story from HealthScout. It discusses new research which shows that men (especially poor men) have a significantly higher risk of suicide shortly after a divorce. The reasons for this have to do with the fact that men generally have smaller support networks, and often loose their family and home, which makes them feel that everything they've worked for has come to nothing. Please consider this if you know a man going through a divorce, and keep an ear open to his pain.
