Quarter of adults have felt suicidal
Tuesday 17 July 2012
A quarter of adults in England and Wales have considered suicide, research suggests.
Suicidal thoughts are most common in those aged 45 to 54, with just over a third saying they had contemplated taking their own life, according to the research conducted by the Campaign Against Living Miserably (Calm).
While men and women can both feel suicidal, more men kill themselves, the campaign group said.
Calm chief executive Jane Powell said: "Any of us can feel suicidal at some time, but not everyone is able to seek help."
