Each year in the UK & Republic of Ireland over 5,000 men take their own lives.
That’s more than a dozen a day
- nearly one life every 90 minutes.


We want to change this.

We want to raise awareness of the hidden issues surrounding male suicide in our communities.

We want to enable and motivate ordinary people to recognise men who may be at risk and to safely offer support.

We want to make it possible for men who may be leading a diminished existence or who have not sought help yet to have solutions and ways of coping other than taking their own lives.

Please use the menu above to browse around this website.

If you have come here because you may be thinking now of taking your own life please click here to read our WAIT article, please talk to someone you trust or call the Samaritans 08457 90 90 90 (UK) 1850 60 90 90 (ROI)

Taking your own life is never the answer, getting help is the answer.

If you are suicidal, have attempted suicide,
or are a suicide survivor, you will find hope, comfort,
support and resources right here.

If you know someone who has attempted suicide, are living with someone you are worried about or want to know how you can help you will find  a strategy for support, inspiration and understanding here.
