Men’s Health Week – 2 Resources

Leave a comment


Males account for 80% of the deaths by suicide in Australia.

It’s Men’s Health Week this week (10-16th June), and a good opportunity to look at resources that may support clinicians working with men, particularly in the area of suicide prevention.

“Promoting good practice in suicide prevention: activities targeting men” produced by the Department of Health and Ageing, 2008

Or have a look at the “Men at risk e-Learning Tool” – a free program that provides information and tools to enhance practitioner knowledge on suicidal risk assessment processes:

If you have a tool that you think is useful to other clinicians or support staff please leave a comment or email the Resource Centre: library@drugarm.com.au
