Suicide continues to be one of the top 10 causes of death amongst men, with suicide prevention campaigners using a Canberra conference to call for more "male friendly" health services to encourage men to seek help.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of male death according to the most recent ABS data which found three-quarters of people who died by suicide were male.
Of the 2535 suicide deaths in Australia in 2012, 1901 were men and 634 were women, which equates to almost seven suicide deaths a day.
Men are three times more likely to commit suicide - and three times less likely to seek help - than women, the 2014 Men's Health and Suicide Prevention Conference in Canberra was told on Wednesday.
