Forgotten Fathers

That the Parliament supports the Forgotten Fathers campaign by Fathers4Justice, which highlights the increased suicide risk among Scotland’s forgotten fathers who are struggling to remain in the lives of children they dearly love; understands that, every week, nine men die from suicide in Scotland and that 71% of all suicides are men; expresses concern not only that suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 across the UK, but that dads are three times more likely to die after separation than mothers, and supports the aims of Fathers4Justice to break what it sees as the wall of silence surrounding the suicide of separated fathers and move towards parental equality in Scotland.

Supported by: Bill Bowman, Ross Thomson, Annie Wells, Gordon Lindhurst
