Over a third of Scottish men (37%) have experienced suicidal thoughts as a result of feeling stressed.
With two people on average dying by suicide in Scotland every day, we still have the highest rate in the UK after Northern Ireland. A survey, commissioned by YouGov, identifies the huge impact that stress can have on men across Scotland and highlights the warning signs of men’s mental ill health.
Uncertainty over jobs and employment, and money worries are just some of the reasons cited as being causes of stress, with over a quarter of men surveyed reporting that not having enough money to meet basic needs was a key cause of stress. Meanwhile the
impact of stress could be seen on both a physical and psychological level, with over half (53%) of those surveyed reporting that stress had an impact on sleep, while 56% reported feelings of anxiety as a result of stress in their lives.
