Male Suicide Prevention work tirelessly to combat Male Suicide, "Whilst some organisations focus on support at the point of considering suicide not enough is done to understand the root causes and to help avoid men getting to this point. Male Suicide has a significant impact on families, communities and the workplace; it is about the lonely and tragic death of much loved fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, and friends. There is broad agreement that the current approach to suicide prevention is not working. The current approach to suicide prevention for men is NOT helpful for many men and may compound the difficulties for many men as well as for practitioners involved in suicide prevention." Using AIMHS ( Australian Institute Of Male Health & Studies) a not for profit organisation which focuses on excellence in the fields of male health and male studies, using education, awareness, opening dialogues, creating programs of male & mental health promotion, mentoring, consulting and supporting under and post-graduate students.
