Historically, Lithuania has had high suicide rates over the decades, especially when it comes to the male population. The rates went down in the 1990s, but they are still higher than in their neighboring countries. A number of factors have been linked to depression and suicide, such as wages, education levels, alcohol consumption, and marital status, just to name a few. Another factor was the societal role of traditional masculine norms influencing the need to ask for help. In turn, it creates a stigma against mental health. However, these issues are now out in the open so that people can talk about them, especially with the development of hotlines and reforms in hospitals so that mental health is also a focus of a person’s well-being.
