This report was launched by the Men’s Health Forum in Ireland (MHFI) on 23 January 2013. The report highlights the main findings from the all-Ireland ‘Young Men and Suicide Project’ (YMSP). The aim of the project was to identify a range of possible means to promote positive mental health among young men on the island of Ireland. The YMSP began in March 2011. 

IPH coordinated the project which was jointly funded by the National Office for Suicide Prevention in the Republic of Ireland and the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland. The report was launched in Belfast by NI Health Minister Edwin Poots MLA and in Dublin by Minister of State Kathleen Lynch TD.
