It’s that time of the year again. The hairy season is upon us. Movember has returned for 2016! The key takeaway is men tend to deal with life’s big challenges in ways that can have long-term consequences for their physical and mental health.
The research also revealed:
• Nearly half (46 per cent) of the men who had experienced a stressful life event such as a relationship breakdown or sudden job loss during the past year reported experiencing suicidal thoughts or behaviours
• The men surveyed were more likely than women surveyed to cope with stressful life events in unhealthy ways, such as drinking,
drugs, taking more risks and becoming more aggressive
• Men over 40 don’t recognise this is the peak age for risk of intentional non-accidental injury, such as self-harm or suicide.
