Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. I lost a coworker to suicide a couple years ago. Half a million men will commit suicide this year.
Depression doesn’t discriminate. Guys, don’t “tough it out” in silence. Talk to somebody. You can always speak with somebody immediately at 1-800-273-TALK.
I am partnering with The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride to support male suicide prevention. Please consider making a donation to support these efforts. Male suicide is a tragedy that must be prevented.
- Suicide is the biggest killer of men aged 20-39, with ¾ of all suicides being male.
- 510,000 men die from suicide each year, one every minute.
This video from the Movember Foundation is a powerful reminder to all men to talk to somebody when in a time of crisis. If you or someone you know is in crisis, check out these resources and start a much needed conversation today.
