Men’s mental health and non-fatal suicidal behaviour.

by Mr. Curwyn Mapaling

In this podcast, Mr Mapaling discusses the findings of an article titled: “I’m Not Afraid of Dying Because I’ve Got Nothing To Lose: Young Men in South Africa Talk About Non-Fatal Suicidal Behaviour”. He briefly discusses the medical view of suicidal behaviour and how their findings do not fit within the medical view. In addition, he discusses how the current socio-economic context can affect the well-being of men and suggests potential strategies that can help reduce or prevent suicide from occurring.
