It has been said that 21 fathers per week take their lives due to child access issues. We cannot verify this statistic because the research has not been done to confirm it. At The Fathers’ Rights Movement, we would argue that 1 death is too many. We know there is research that has been done on male suicide in general, but it does not account for the convenience of a “heart attack” or a “drug overdose” when that male is a father. We also know what leads fathers, specifically, to feel as if they have no other options and no other reason to live.
"Parental Alienation is mourning the death of a child who is still alive"
When a father decides to end his life, the impact is devastating. The sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, parents, friends, acquaintances and extended family members all wish they could have done more to prevent a suicide that ended one man’s pain, but leaves many others hurting. If you have lost someone, you have experienced that feeling.
