Men and Suicide: What's Going On?

It's a paradox: men have low rates of depression compared to women, yet they are four times more likely to die by suicide. So what's going on? The Royal's Psychiatrist-in-Chief, Dr. Rajiv Bhatla, takes us on an interactive exploration of the critical mental health issues facing men, including the silent epidemic of male suicide. He discusses the stereotypes that influence how men's health is perceived and dealt with; the real story that depression and suicide data can tell us about men's mental health; and what can be done about it.
