    Its a fact that more men than women take their own lives, the biggest group for suicide is young men. I was just

    wondering if anyone has any theories on why this should be the case?

    Why more men kill themselves??

    Men face far more social pressure and stress to succeed and provide for their families.
    A man who incapable of doin' so can become labeled a failure, both by himself and society.
    How often do you hear the term "failure" applied to a woman ?
    Vilevile wanawake they are better able to share their problems and get help or ask for help.
    I think that might be one of the reasons.
    Female might be spared the awful choice .
