Male suicide has been an infamously difficult issue as stigmas, and constructs have stood in the way of those who have needed to seek help, luckily there has been a huge campaign to improve the communication and opportunities available to those who need it and according to the statistics this push is leading to some much-needed improvements.

Specifically, a report by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said that there were 4,382 suicides by men last year, a rate of 15.5 deaths per 100,000, this was down from 16 per 100,000 last year and the lowest since the ONS began recording the rate in 1981.

As for women, the rate was 4.9 per 100,000, which is pretty consistent with the pattern over the past 10 years.
