REFERRALS FOR BROS
MENTAL HEALTH EMERGENCY CONTACTS
No male-specific mental health services available.
The support for mental health is extremely limited in Indonesia. There is no specific mental health support for men. The stigma is still massive. Evidence suggests that the prevailing social stigma surrounding suicide prevents young people with suicidal thoughts from speaking openly and seeking support. Suicide is still a taboo subject in Indonesia. Suicide victims and survivors are perceived as ‘evildoers’ and their behaviour condemned as deviant. Similarly, research involving families of suicide victims shows that blame is placed on family members and friends for failing to prevent the ‘self-murder’.
BROS suggests that any fellas in Indonesia battling with suicide ideation, to go to your dearest hospital A&E.
