  • 7 males die by suicide every day in Australia

  • 1 in 4 men have no close mates

  • 1 in 3 men experience loneliness

  • 3 in 5 men have lost contact more mates than they would like

  • loneliness:

    • is as unhealthy as obesity and smoking 15 cigarettes a day

    • is bad for your heart

    • increases risk of suicide

  • Those with fewer than three people they could confide in and count on for social support were roughly twice as likely to die from a vast array of diseases than those with more confidants
