September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day

Today is Suicide Prevention Australia – World Suicide Prevention Day.

6 Males suicide every 24 hours in Australia and since having our inaugural Save This Date – I’m Just A Man #2 on 22/11/17, 1500 Males have suicided, a number greater than the road toll.

The number reason we started this gala is to raise the awareness of #MensMentalHealth and the #MaleSuicide Epidemic. Another friend of mine and two of my wives colleagues in the airlines industry took their lives.

Unfortunately, we all know someone, a brother, father, uncle, son, mate who have or may have directly affected from suicide.

Last year we had 150 people in attendance, with men and women side by side, and speakers from beyondblue and Movember Foundation Australia, Farming Industry, AFL Footballer, and music to honour the thousands of males who have passed away in the last decade.

This year we hope to double the number of people in attendance, continue the open conversation and raise a greater profile for mens mental health and the male suicide epidemic.

My name is Dr. Jim and I’m Just A Man.

Mental Health Awareness

Mental Health Awareness

Men are known for bottling things up. But when you’re feeling down, taking action to call in extra support is the responsible thing to do.

Trying to go it alone when you’re feeling down increases the risk of depression or anxiety going unrecognised and untreated. Depression is a high risk factor for suicide, and plays a contributing role to the big difference in suicide rates for men and women.

On average, one in eight men will experience depression and one in five men will experience anxiety at some stage of their lives.1

Blokes make up an average six out of every eight suicides every single day in Australia. The number of men who die by suicide in Australia every year is nearly double the national road toll.

Everyone’s mental health varies during their life, and can move back and forth along their own personal range between positive and healthy at one end through to severe symptoms or conditions that impact on everyday life at the other, in response to different stressors and experiences.

Effectively managing your mental health can give you significant improvements in your quality of life, increase your capacity to support your family and your mates, and let you perform at your best.
