I was appalled to hear Dr John Draper a 'suicide expert' engage in blaming the victim with his statement that more men commit suicide because 'men fail to seek support'. How about the fact that men are much more likely to be the victims of Parental Alienation Dr Draper? And that is just one issue that needs to be addressed, even accepting that men dont seek help so much perhaps it would be pertinent to ask why? Could it possibly be because there is less help available for men, ie less support, less recourse to solutions and less sympathy for their problems? As a victim of Parental Alienation myself I can tell you there is virtually no meaningful support (very often the existence of the phenomenon is even denied, there is no recourse to a solution and there is precious little sympathy - all the doctors want to do is dope you up so you dont feel the pain anymore - that is not a solution that is just 'putting tape over the warning light'). Also the rubbish about more men die from suicide attempts because men use more effective methods such as firearms, etc. You can check the stats yourself, when it comes to killing partners women use firearms just as much as men do. Women are perfectly capable of using 'effective means' when death is the desired result. The question you have to ask is whether someone who takes half a bottle of sleeping pills and lies on a bed where they know someone will find them in a few hours and take them to hospital is engaging in exactly the same sort of behavior as someone who pushes the muzzle of a double barreled shotgun into the roof of their mouth and pulls both triggers. Interestingly they often say that 'attempts at suicide' can be 'cries for help'. 'Self harm events' can be cries for help, genuine attempts at suicide cannot be cries for help because they aim to produce death, one side-effect of which is that no help will ever be possible so it is ludicrous to assert that it is attempt to get help.
