Dr. Dadson Examines Suicide in Men

“Sadly, suicide in men is a global public health concern” cites Dr. Michael Dadson.

Dr. Dadson warns:

Tragically, men are disproportionately affected. Although women may have higher rates of attempted suicide, consistently men demonstrate higher rates of completed suicide compared to women. Understanding the contributing factors of suicide in men is critical for suicide prevention efforts, recognizing warning signs, and promoting improved mental well-being in men.

It is important to remember that suicide is a complex issue, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Ongoing research, community efforts, and destigmatizing men’s mental health are crucial in addressing the significant impact of suicide on men’s lives and promoting their overall well-being.

Multitudes of research support the effectiveness of counseling in reducing the risk of suicide in men. “Counselling interventions can address the underlying factors associated with suicide, including mental health issues, past or present trauma, emotional distress, and coping difficulties” summarizes Dr. Dadson.

By Providing safety a safety plan, and interventions and emphasizing the importance of preventive measures such as restricting access to lethal means can reduce the likelihood of completed suicide.
