Over the past decade the suicide rate among men has been higher in Wales than in England, according to the latest ONS data.
In 2022, north-east England had the highest rate of male suicide, 12.8 per 100,000 individuals, followed by Wales and north-west England at 12.5.
It also shows that men are three times more likely to die by suicide than women in Wales.
For Jack, his experiences of loss feed into that picture.
“It’s two men, it’s young men as well. Jamie was 28 and dad was 47 so that’s two men under 50,” Jack said.
He also reflects on his own mental health.
“I suffer with depression and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
“I take anti-depressants daily and there’s nothing wrong with that.”
