Men Outnumber Women At Crisis Centre

We are currently seeing more men than women at our Suicide Crisis Centre. We’re being told that it’s because we are seen as completely independent. Our male clients are often reluctant to see their GP or seek help from statutory services – for many reasons.

Men are three times more likely to die by suicide than women and it is often stated that they are less likely to seek help. Our independence (from statutory services) seems to be encouraging men to use our services.
