Tragically, suicide is far more common than people may think. The last global data produced by the World Health Organization in 2016 estimated that there were around 793000 suicide deaths worldwide, most of them were men. The government claims the male suicide rate is at its lowest since 1981 - at 15.5 deaths per 100000, but suicide remains the single biggest killer of men unde the age of 45. There is a large gender split to consider too, women in the UK have a rate of 4.9 suicides per 100000.
