Hi,

Single Male , with mental health problems , I would say is high risk of suicide, If there is self harm issues , this has to be taken seriously,

the problem is Malesdo not discuss issues of self  harm  and thoughts of suicide openly so any information or inclinations about suicidal ideation has to be taken very seriously.

atthe end of the day in psychiatry risk assessment is the '' bread and butter ''of psychiatrist!''

 

PS : please do a thorough Risk Assessment and Risk Management
