It’s estimated that around one million people will die by suicide worldwide each year.
Suicide remains the most common cause of death in men under the age of 35 (Five Years On, Department Of Health, 2005).
More than 5700 people in the UK died by suicide in 2010 (Samaritans Information Resource Pack, 2012).
British men are three times as likely as British women to die by suicide (Samaritans Information Resource Pack, 2004).
The suicide rate among people over 65 has fallen by 24% in recent years, but is still high compared to the population overall. (Samaritans Information Resource Pack, 2004).
