June is Buddy Up Month. Did you Know

  • Men have a suicide rate 3x higher than women? Women attempt suicide more often but men die by suicide 3x more often then women.
  • Men are often socialized not to talk about their emotions, and therefore,  many men may mask their stress.
  • Buddy Up is a suicide prevention campaign by men for men, encouraging them to have real conversations with their buddies and to support them if they are struggling with thoughts of suicide.
