What helps to prevent suicide in men? 

We are looking for men, and their family and friends to take part in a research project examining suicidal behaviours in men 

Who are we looking for? 

YOU can take part in this study if you are: 

  • Male
  • 18 years or older
  • Have made a suicide attempt that was between 6 and 18 months ago
  • Have access to a computer and the internet  

What do you have to do? 

We will ask you to share your own experiences and the factors that contributed to suicidal thoughts and behaviour. We will also ask about factors that may have interrupted, and prevented suicidal thoughts and behaviour in a one-on-one interview, or via an online questionnaire. You must not currently be at risk of suicide.

Who are we looking for? 

YOU can take part in this study if you are: 

  • 18 years or older
  • You are male or female but have a male friend or male family member who has made a suicide attempt that was between 6 and 18 months ago
  • Have access to a computer and the internet 

What do you have to do? 

We will ask you to share your thoughts and opinions about the signs of suicidal behaviour in males, and to suggest ways that suicidal behaviour can be recognised, interrupted and prevented. You can choose to do this in a focus group with other individuals in a similar position to you, or via an online questionnaire. Please note that this research is not designed to be a support group.
