Middle-aged men are more likely to die by suicide than any other age group. We have conducted years of research to explore what can be done to better support men who are struggling.
Our report, Out of sight, out of mind: Why less well-off, middle-aged men don’t get the support they need, focuses on the lived experience of men.
In terms of age, gender and socio-economic status, the group most at risk of suicide are middle-aged men from disadvantaged backgrounds. In 2012, we explored why this group is vulnerable to suicide.
Our handbook, Engaging men earlier: a guide to service design, provides a set of principles upon which wellbeing initiatives for men should be based, drawn from what men have told us is important to them.
