Statistics also show suicide remains the leading cause of death in men under 50 and that 75% of people who die by suicide are men.

"It is very important that people are able to speak about their mental health and wellbeing with friends, family or other support networks," said Sergeant Anthony Horsnall of Nottinghamshire Police’s triage and mental health team.

"The causes of suicide are very complex and it’s vital that people feel that they have the support to share their concerns in a safe environment."
