The Australian Men's Health Forum is calling on the Morrison Government to develop a national plan to tackle male suicide in Australia.
We invite you to join this campaign by writing a message of support to the Prime Minister (see right).
Over 75% of male suicides are men, but the majority of suicide prevention services the Government funds are shown to largely address female suicide risk factors.
Suicide prevention strategies in Australia don't take into account the differences between men's and women's experiences of suicide.
They don’t account for the fact that male suicides are more often linked to relationship problems, money issues, job loss and alcohol abuse.
You can help Save Aussie Men by asking the Government to do more to tackle male suicide.
Last month the National Suicide Prevention Adviser to the Prime Minister, Christine Morgan, called on the Government to fund a men's action plan aimed at preventing male suicide.
“The Government has set itself the ambitious target of working towards a zero suicide goal," said AMHF CEO, Glen Poole.
"Tackling male suicide with a targeted strategy and funding would go further than any other approach to achieving this goal."
In 2019, male suicide rose from six men and boys a day to seven. A day.
Make today count. Be like SAM.
