Men's Human Rights Ireland has set up a petition calling on the government to set up a taskforce to specifically address the epidemic of male suicide in Ireland today.
Men in Ireland are committing suicide at 5 times the rate of women in Ireland today. Three hundred and eighty six confirmed male suicides took place in 2010 and the number has not decreased since. The 2011 figures saw a rise in male suicides, which accounted for 84% of all suicide deaths.
Please sign the petition. Thank you.
