Abstract: The decision by The Age to publish a series on the largely ignored national problem of male suicide was not made lightly. In the course of this investigation, the paper was encouraged by health professionals and by the families of suicide victims – the people most critically affected - to publish their stories. There was an overwhelming belief that the issue needed to be aired and discussed. Steve Waldon is a senior writer at The Age and has held several key editorial roles there over 25 years. Julie-Anne wrote for The Age for 10 years and is currently at The Bulletin Magazine.
