Vancouver researchers broach silence about suicide and LGBT issues with photo exhibit and studies

While suicide rates have traditionally been significantly higher among men than women, rates are even higher for queer men. And yet, it's an issue that remains largely unaddressed.

Postdoctoral research fellow Dr. Olivier Ferlatte of UBC's Men's Health Research program is one of several local researchers who are leading the way toward broaching the silence around suicide in Canada, particularly when it comes to LGBT issues.

The Still Here exhibit is on display at the Health Initiative for Men's newly relocated and expanded Davie Street health clinic.
