    Mens Mental Health

    The split in suicide rates between men 80% and women 20% has remained static for decades. In my area the split is now 54% men. Speaking with friends there seems to be a sharp rise in suicide by men in the 18 to 30 year old range. This gets no media attention. Efforts to get the gender of suicide victims out of the medical examiners office by mens mental health advocates are being stonewalled.

    Has anyone else seen a rise in suicide rates of young men in their area?

    With men constantly being denigrated in media and the diversion of public mental health resources to services for women only, I believe there is a looming crisis in mens mental health that no media entity wants to address lest they stray from their woke (women as victims) narrative.

    The crisis isn't "looming", it's here, and has been here for some time. It's so bad that governments here in Oz are actually starting to notice and maybe do something about men in particular.

    Googling "male suicide australia government response" pulls up some heartening links.

    As to why men's suicide is such a thing:
    1. Men aren't playing life on easy mode.
    2. People don't instinctively care about men the same way they care about women.
    3. Men are better at it - same as with most practicalities.

    It gets mentioned down here in the media every so often but no one wants to hear men talk about their feelings. Especially when those feelings aren't PC or Woke.

    Suicide notes also get confiscated by the police so unless it is war vets killing themselves we never hear the reasons why.

    In america it will always get looked over. As men we’re supposed to be labeled strong but then suicide makes society label us as cowards yet for the women they weren’t cowards they just ended the suffering—what bullshit! One thing I plan to do if I get the opportunity is to advocate for mens mental health & turn this sick sideshow around. And I hope many ithers decide to advocate as well. It’s like saying we’ve had to listen to the fems pov & now getting to speak over it. The power..

    Mental health professionals would rather help the women that are crying, kicking, screaming, yelling for pills at the doctors office, then a man who’s is hiding their emotions because society has told men they’re supposed to be “tough”.

    A man’s problems are apparently not a comparison when it comes to women’s issues.

    It’s always about themselves and they don’t care about men. My boss is a woman and every time we have meetings she makes the conversation about herself.

    “How was your weekend?”

    “It was pretty good I saw this movie…” “oh wow that’s one I haven’t seen yet, I actually don’t go to movies the last movie I saw, lets see was…, I actually miss going to the movies I need to go back to that one movie theater.. blah blah blah”
