Abstract: It is known that men are at a higher risk of suicide; 70% of people who die by suicide are men. By exploring some of the reasons behind suicide in young men aged 15-29 years old, this article will look at not just the influence of perceived physical strength, but also their mental state of mind. It combines information from the World Health Organisation (WHO), research conducted in other countries and the information available in the UK, to hopefully benefit and encourage further research to be carried out. Men's mental health is at the forefront of many campaigns, but there is still a lack of understanding why suicide is occurring.
