This is a hard article to write, and it’s probably going to be a hard article for you to read.
But it’s important to talk about it…
Because that uncomfortable feeling around talking about or even thinking about suicide is just one reason suicide has become the leading killer of men under the age of 50.
Why do men kill themselves?
In fact, why does a man take his own life every 2 hours in the UK alone?
Why is the suicide rate increasing year after year and why out of all of the suicides last year, a massive 76% were men?
Isn’t it time we did something? Isn’t it time we changed the way we’re currently handling our emotions and spoke about it?
I strongly believe so.
After losing my Dad to suicide 6 years ago, I’ve consistently asked the same question many others who’ve been affected by suicide ask…
Why did he do it?
What could we have done?
I’ve dropped into depression myself, I’ve experienced that deep dark hole many men will experience in their life and I’ve seen why suicide can become not just a choice… but the only choice.
Can suicide really be a choice if it’s the only choice available?
I’m sure that’s what my Dad felt, as ourselves and people around us kept asking the question of why he did it.
There needs to be more support, it needs to be openly spoken about and treated as it is… a health issue.
Suicide is a subject people avoid talking about, people don’t like to admit the times they’ve felt suicidal and this silence is a huge factor behind the shocking statistics right now.
4,624 isn’t just a number, it isn’t just a statistic, it’s the amount of men who took their own life in the UK last year.
The pain we went through as a family after my Dad took his own life, the pain we saw him go through, the amount of people around him it effected on paper just added an extra number to that ever rising figure.
As you read this you yourself have probably been affected by suicide, or at least know someone who is.
So let’s do something about it…
