It’s Hard for Men to Seek Help, Hence they Commit Suicide

The findings in a recent research have proposed that 25% of adults in England and Wales consider suicide as the best option to get rid of troubles.

The research carried out by Campaign against Living Miserably (Calm) revealed that adults, who were aged between 45 and 54, were the ones who have considered suicide. Rather, 75% of them have admitted that they have tried to commit suicide.

The campaign group notified that suicidal thoughts were common in both men and women. However, majority proportion of the suicides was committed by men. Statistics reveal that in 2010, 4,517 people committed suicide, out of which 75.5% were men.

Calm Chief Executive Jane Powell, said, "This survey debunks the myth that suicide is only caused by mental illness. Any of us can feel suicidal at some time in our life, but not everyone is able to seek help".

Ms. Powell further suggested that government should introduce policies to prevent suicidal attempts and also to save lives of those, who lose them by committing suicide. Moreover, they should be based on gender, as women still share their feelings and discuss their problems with others, but it is not the same in case of men. They find it hard to ask out someone for help.
