MACKAY’S suicide crisis has deepened with three men believed to have taken their own lives in a week.
Two of them were in their 20s, the other in his 40s.
Last year 33 people died by suicide in Mackay.
Grapevine Group chairman Laurence Manning said there simply wasn’t enough awareness about mental health issues.
“We all understand major health issues like slip, slop, slap and checking our skin for signs of skin cancer, but we don’t know much about mental health problems and what to do,” Mr Manning said.
“The blokey culture is certainly a big problem.”
The young men had played rugby league.
Hayden Butler and Regan Grieve, who died by suicide in Mackay in January, were also rugby league players.
“Maybe in this case young men who play football are experiencing mental health problems and do not feel they can talk about it,” Mr Manning said.
