Samaritans, a suicide helpline charity, has revealed lately that men in their middle age in the UK are the ones most likely to commit suicide, as per a recent report.
A group of sociologists and psychologists was commissioned by it so as to find a logical reason why men are more risked at taking their own lives. It was found that it was merely because they felt themselves inferior.
In case, they are not able to reach what is known as a gold standard of masculinity, the risks become high. The report finds that even falling short of living up to the expectations of society; some men take such a major step of committing suicide.
It has been told that while the "buffer generation" in any region is likely to do so in such cases, greater possibilities are amid rural or less deprived areas. Some 3,000 men in all in their mid-ages, including 30s, 40s or 50s, claim their lives each year.
The researchers believe that lack of social support as compared to that the women receive along with the changing labour market plays a big role in this. David Sidwell, a breakdown sufferer himself, suggested, "Don't suffer in silence. Talk to someone and get some help".
