Public Lecture: What’s Wrong with Trying to Prevent Male Suicide?

January 26, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Zoom

The story of male suicide is rather desperate and frightening. Across the world, males are 3 to 4 times more likely to die by suicide than females, and the suicide methods used by males result in often quite violent and gruesome deaths. So, then what could be wrong with efforts to prevent male suicide, and how could paying less attention to suicide prevention help to cultivate hope in the lives of boys and men?

We will begin engaging these questions by exploring a few basic problems with what it means to “be a man” in our society. During our discussion of some of the more dangerous and even deadly consequences of this perspective, we will gradually turn our attention to developing a much more hopeful view that sees boys and men as whole human beings. And as we learn to how see and treat the boys and men in our lives in this way, our relations with them will have far more positive, lasting effects than if we simply continue trying to prevent them from harming themselves and others.
