GLOBALLY, EVERY MINUTE,

A MAN DIES BY SUICIDE.

To speak with someone immediately, contact your local crisis support line.

If life is in danger, call 911 or go directly to emergency services.

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Around the world, on average we lose a man to suicide every minute of every day. Six out of 10 suicides are men. Too many are toughing it out and struggling alone.

WE HAVE TO TAKE ACTION TO IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH AND REDUCE THE RATE OF MALE SUICIDE.

Helping men and boys to stay mentally healthy, build strong social connections and take action early when times are tough.
Working toward a world where men and boys are comfortable having conversations about the big things in life.
We know the needs of men, and we’re working to make sure that services are designed with those needs in mind.
We’re funding the most innovative projects, and when we know something works, we share that knowledge globally.
Men need to be able to access support in their communities and where they’re comfortable. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution.
We’re forcing governments to understand the issues that men are facing, and we’re demanding action.
“We’re alarmed by the increasing number of men who take their own lives around the world. We are working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to reach out to others for support when they’re struggling.”
– Paul Villanti
Executive Director, Programs

We’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects in Canada and around the world. Here’s a snapshot of our work in mental health and suicide prevention.
