Ronnie O’Brien is joined by SUZANNE COSTELLO of the Samaritans to discuss the “Suicide report on middle aged men”. They discuss how suicide affects all age groups in society and is also known to grow during times of recession.
They discuss how construction workers and taxi drivers have been affected by the recession and how the rate of suicides within these groups is quite high. They discuss the sociological relationship between the two.
They discuss how women tend to attend GP’s but men may not engage with GP’s quite as much and how this can have an impact on a man’s mental health.
