Last Saturday the third student in a month took their own life at Bristol University.
In 2015, 134 students committed suicide; the highest figure since 2004.
However, it’s a very small, if no less tragic, % of the total number of adults who commit suicide – 5,366 according to the ONS. 75% male; 25% female.
In fact, suicide is the most common cause of death in men aged 20-49. Not cancer, not heart disease, not strokes. Men taking their own lives.
