Men and Mental Health

An estimated, 1 in every 8 men will deal with depression and 1 in every 5 men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives.

The statistics say that Women are more likely to suffer with depression and anxiety in their lives, however this may just be because Men are less likely to openly discuss their issues particularly things like depression, anxiety and stress.

Suicide deaths in Australia are estimated at 2,200 every year with  80% of all suicides by men. Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under the age of 44, with 1,726 deaths by self harm in 2011.

It’s important to remember that depression and anxiety are illnesses, not weaknesses, and effective treatments are available.
