Desperately seeking 200 men

Researchers are looking for 200 more completed surveys for their landmark investigation of suicide and gender.

Chartered psychologist and research co-ordinator, John Barry of UCL explained the importance of the study. 'It is widely known that the rate of male suicide is at least three times higher in men than for women. Although research into the reasons for suicide often covers issues like mental health and demographic factors, issues related to gender tend to be overlooked. Our new survey has been launched to correct this omission.'

The findings are expected to be published later this year. Meanwhile, can you help? You don't need to be suicidal, just have a little time to complete a survey which may help male mental health. For further information, or to take part in the survey, contact the Men's Mental Health Research Team.
