Reducing Male Suicide

The internationally-based Reducing Male Suicide (RMS) emergent team will address men's mental health inequities, optimize men's mental health help-seeking experiences, and equip community-based and professional mental health care services to expertly evaluate and treat men's mental illnesses and suicidality through 3 themes: Focusing on health inequities for at risk male sub-groups; understanding the experiences of men who seek, and general practitioners who provide, mental health care; and describing relationships between men's mental illnesses (including depression) and suicide risk.
