It's good to understand the real causes of male suicide. If you are suicidal or have suicidal ideas, please do reach out.

I know how lonely, hopeless, and defeated one can feel. I've been thru it myself.

Same brother, I’ve been there too. Appreciate you linking the post, it’s some really good info I wish was more widely spread. Especially the bit where it points a critical finger at the term “toxic masculinity”; I’ve always had such a problem with that term because it snidely puts the toxic brush over all masculinity while pretending to just point out some “toxic” male behaviors. Would love to see what the reaction would be to labeling behaviors as being “toxically feminine”.

Important for people in helping area's is to ask and ask about plans. As far as I am aware if someone has a detailed plan they are most likely to act on it, but most people won't tell a therapist etc. that without asking. The 58% in financial problems for example seems very 'logical' to me.

For anyone thinking about suicide or going through a rough time, there are helplines if you need it.

I volunteered for the dutch one for a while, and active listening can be so important. You are allowed to have these feelings, it doesn't make anyone weak.

For me personally my suicidal episode in my life was when I was bullied in high school, asked teachers for help and things only got worse. I didn't see a way out and that usually is a common theme in suicide. Ofcourse at some point the circumstances did change, even though at the time I couldn't see how. Most help at the time would have been someone who did point out ways I could change things. (For example I could have switched schools which as a kid I didn't even think off.)

I later went through a depression, but wasn't suicidal, while I wouldn't describe myself as depressed in high school.

Man I'm 37 and the years of school bullying and exclusion still get to me. Now, I just try to imagine the exact same kids trying to push me around and it makes it easier to deal with.

Thanks for sharing your experience and advice

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
