Research By Movemeber Reveals Men's Mental Health At Work A Problem

Northern Ireland has the highest suicide rate in the UK with 305 registered deaths to suicide in 2017. A new strategy aims to help those at risk Northern Ireland has the highest suicide rate in the UK with 305 registered deaths to suicide in 2017. A new strategy aims to help those at risk

The overall decline is explained by the fact that a number of countries - 38 in total - have put in place suicide prevention strategies, World Health Organization said, stressing however that many more countries must follow suit.

Weekes said suicide disproportionately affects young people and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds globally.

Almost 3000 people on average commit suicide daily, according to WHO.

But there are wide disparities across the continent. However, the number of deaths remained stable due to population growth. The worst-hit countries were Russian Federation (26.5 per 100,000), Lithuania (25.7 per 100,000) and Belarus (21.4 per 100,000).

In the western Pacific, rates fell by almost 20%, while in Guyana the rate topped more than 30 per 100,000, making it the highest in the world.

Ms Murray commended the Morrison Government on listening to Suicide Prevention Australia's calls for the appointment of a national suicide prevention advisor within Prime Minister & Cabinet.

She adds, "It's also about a collective community approach to suicide prevention and Waterloo Region certainly has been a very collaborative community, and they work together to meet the needs of individuals in the community. We call on all countries to incorporate proven suicide prevention strategies into national health and education programs in a sustainable way", said WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) wants countries to revise pesticide control regulations to edge out chemicals that are commonly used in suicides.

"It is my expectation that this strategy will bring hope, support and clear direction for all involved in suicide prevention in Northern Ireland", Mr Pengelly said.

A series of bans led to a 70 percent decrease in suicides and an estimated 93,000 lives saved in Sri Lanka between 1995 and 2015. Equal numbers of men and women take their own lives in low and middle-income countries.

Dr Leah Quinlivan, a Lead Researcher at the GM PSTRC, said: "One of the studies we're now working on is mental health assessments and psychological therapies following self-harm and we hope this event will help shine a light on it so more people will sign up to the online survey**".

It also sought to dispel a number of "common myths" including the wrongly held belief that those who are determined to take their life will do so eventually. We've campaigned vigorously to ensure anyone affected by suicide can get effective support now and in the future, and we believe that services which are shaped by the people who use them will deliver the best results.
