Abstract

More women than men attempt suicide, but many more men are successful. Until recently most psychological explanations of this difference have focused on biological aspects, and have largely neglected aspects related to gender. Could the construction of masculinities be the key to understanding how men contemplate, discuss and enact suicide?
