Men’s Mental Health and Suicide in Canada – Key Takeaways

Of the estimated 4,000 suicide deaths in Canada each year, close to 75 per cent are men.

Based on findings from the Evidence Brief, this resource highlights statistics on men’s mental health and suicidal behaviours, factors that contribute to their increased risk of suicide and suicide deaths, subgroups who are at higher risk of suicide, and the potential and observed impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on men’s mental health and suicide. The resource also highlights best and promising suicide prevention practices as well as resources for those looking for further support.
