Attempted suicide more common among Australian women than men

Women’s Health Victoria is calling for greater understanding and awareness around female suicide in Australia, in conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide is a serious area of concern for both men and women in Australia and yet it is too often perceived as predominately a men’s issue. World Suicide Prevention Day is a sobering reminder of the many issues which lead women to attempt suicide, which commonly include domestic violence and discrimination.
