Gender and suicide

Women are more likely to suffer from depression and the social stresses that can make a person unhappy. Thus women are more likely to attempt suicide. However, the risk of death by suicide is usually higher in men. This is particularly the case for older men with a drinking problem who are living alone or in unhappy marriages. One reason for this difference is that men may choose more dangerous methods of suicide and are, therefore, more likely to succeed in their attempt. However, women are also more likely to be discriminated against because of the suicide attempt. Take all suicide attempts seriously, whether by men or women.
