The number of men who took their own lives in 2013 was its highest level for 15 years.
Figures released by the Office of National Statistics show almost four times as many men as women killed themselves last year.
- Male suicides: 4,020
- Female suicides: 1,120
Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) says gender is the biggest issue when it comes to suicide.
They're calling for more to be done to help:
"There is still a stigma around suicide, and men can feel less able to talk about their problems.
More needs to be done to help people who are struggling and might see suicide as the only option, and to support the families of people who take their own lives."
