When we think about a man in midlife, we may see them as independent and can take care of themselves. And yet men in the middle years—between the ages of 35 and 64—have a suicide rate that is more than double the national average, says psychiatrist Jeff Sung. What’s more, many men at risk of suicide will not seek conventional mental health treatment. So we need to figure out what works for men. And we need to change the life trajectory of men who are at risk of suicide.
