UK mental health suicides soar
A new report has revealed that the number of male mental health patients aged between 45 and 54 who die by suicide has risen by more than 73% over the past nine years.
The study by the University of Manchester has warned that the deaths should be seen as “a suicide prevention priority”.
According to the report, the total number of suicides among men suffering from mental problems has risen by nearly a third in the same period.
Study also suggests that the number of suicides by the mental health patients in the UK hit a 10-year high in 2013.
