Community-Based Programs Can Help Reduce Male Suicide

In Canada, men account for three out of every four suicides -- with seven men dying by suicide every day. And the risk is even greater for gay and bisexual men, who are four times more likely to attempt suicide than heterosexual men. Which isn't surprising since they also experience higher levels of harassment, discrimination in the workplace and are more likely to be the victims of violent crime.

Why I Joined The Women's March

The Women's March is a reminder that there are many ways to support a positive future. You don't have to make a sign or scream really loud or join 60,000 people on foot. You can educate yourself and others, you can donate to causes that support equality and the environment, you can volunteer for organizations that improve lives of people in your community and you can make small changes in your lifestyle to better the future of others.
"What's Working" is a global HuffPost editorial initiative to double down on our coverage of people coming up with solutions to the very real challenges we face. While we will continue to cover the stories of what's not working as relentlessly as we always have, we're going beyond "If it bleeds, it leads” to shine a light on the stories of creativity, innovation, ingenuity and compassion the media too often overlooks. We've heard of copycat crimes. Our hope is that by showing the complete picture of our world, What’s Working will inspire copycat solutions.
