As Ally points out the suicide figures are a national scandal. It is almost inhuman that men can get the message that they will get no help. Women attempt suicide often as a cry for help, sadly men seem to know that there is no help and make sure attempts succeed. It is another manifestation of the "disposable" nature of men as "human doings". All one with the whole women and children first debate.
