MFL#044 – Suicidal Thoughts of Men and How To Help Them.
Today’s show is about suicide and suicide prevention tactics for men going through a divorce. It’s the 10th leading cause of death in America, Men are 3.5 times more likely to die by suicide than women. White males were 70% of the suicides in 2014. Worst of all, it is preventable. We can help each other, and that’s why I’m taking on this topic today.
