What can be done about the male suicide rate, and why is it treated as either a joke or not that big of a deal?

worldscolide
In the UK 12 men die daily to suicide. In the US 129 men die per day due to suicide. More than 4 times the rate of women.

- The age-adjusted suicide rate in 2017 was 14.0 per 100,000 individuals.
- The rate of suicide is highest in middle-aged white men in particular.
- In 2017, men died by suicide 3.54x more often than women.
- On average, there are 129 suicides per day.
- White males accounted for 69.67% of suicide deaths in 2017.
- In 2017, firearms accounted for 50.57% of all suicide deaths.

My question is what can we do to combat it?

Society puts so much pressure on men to be the protectors, the providers, the super hero.. And we live in a society where traditionally masculine things are called toxic, Where every action we make is seen as harmful. In a world where you are seen as the enemy if you have a penis between your legs, its no wonder it happens as often as it does.

Additionally mental health lines, suicide hot lines, domestic violence hotlines are all geared toward women. Its an incredibly rare thing to see a counselor that actually knows how to help guys (in my case i lucked out and found one)..

“Only women, children and dogs are loved unconditionally. A man is only loved under the condition that he provide something.” — Chris Rock
