June is Canadian Men’s Health Month – Men Die by Suicide Four Times More Than Women. Learn More!

Although tremendous leaps have been made surrounding men’s mental health in the past decade—men are still in crisis.

Men die by suicide in numbers almost four times that of women, including young men between the ages of 20 – 30 in alarming numbers and men aged 40 – 60.¹

But I think we’re in that flux area, or that kind of latency period where we start the conversation, and then start to see change.”.. Read Full CMHC The Importance of Men’s Mental Health
