people. men don't cry they're far too tough for that. they're also physically strong and when it comes to problems men certainly don't need any help such fuse still holds sway in many societies could these traditional ideals be behind rising levels of mental illness among boys and men. the world health organization estimates that around $800000.00 people worldwide take their own lives each year most a male in the us for example 3 times as many men take their own lives than women. although they're often many reasons behind a suicide it can be tougher for men to seek help especially when doing so is viewed as a sign of weakness. corben

was big for his age at just 13 he was already very strong and good at sports his mother and his sister often visit his grave. rather than a simple gravestone they've put up a memorial bench 3 years ago corbin took his own life his sister mckinsey is still struggling to come to terms with his death i come here every day every day really so you've. got a trying to carry on the tradition of being able to come out here and seeing them and just like all times thanks hang out or do something out here or there my homework to sit out here and listen to music. there's still stuff like that something in my mind off. corbin's mother charlotte's trying to look ahead she wants his grave to be

a sanctuary for his friends to spot where they can come and. be themselves without anybody judging them. but with the toughness in montana and being having rough tough. hard shell and not breaking it open and not getting that blooming onion peeling back the layers yes. the general's live in mile city a small montana town that's proud of its wild west heritage yet every 33 hours in montana someone commits suicide putting the state at the top of a very sad league. following a series of suicides by schoolchildren miles sidney a local high school teacher decided he couldn't just sit back. and like how he
12:34 am
founded the let's talk club today a guest is visiting to discuss the factors that can lead to suicide school like the school scott radisson thinks talking with each other is especially important in sparsely populated and often cold and grey in montana when families see mental health as a weakness. and they're telling kids you know it tougher than the sprawl and like you said color cowboy up i mean it's very dangerous i think you know and that's just not being educated or not being understanding of what. you know what it means to struggle with depression. the let's talk club wants to get more children to talk about their worries boys and girls are both affected but the members of the club are mostly young women why is that. i don't know that's a good question you're very hard guys we've had a few but that might become one meeting and i'm like not come again sort of thing

like again like invariants like about half. corben didn't talk much either and his parents didn't push him to. his father still regrets not talking with his son as a trucker he was away a lot. mckinsey designed a tattoo in her brother's memory that includes a fishing hook and antlers to represent corbin's hobbies. to me it's women here and things i don't know how you go about uncovering it but you know what it is you try to get kids to speak out. more freely about annoying that we're trying to let them know that there's no if not be ashamed of. you know to reach out for help when you need it or talk to somebody. kaitlyn jilin agrees with that her brother also killed himself then only 6 months later her

father died in a sleep. suicide is a major problem across montana in livingston like many other small towns here there aren't enough psychologists kaitlin says waiting lists are months long in part due to health care cutbacks. she speaks openly about her despair one evening i was done i was exhausted and no member oaken so i took some pills with the goal of ending up with my father and brother. only a couple know this part about me like 2 people. oh but i want people to know that we all have our bad days but i don't think god god is done with us yet. i can over them tell myself that i'm ok.
12:37 am
the american suicide prevention foundation coordinates private and state initiatives and events like this fundraising walk are springing up all over the us it's a 2 mile walk through largely deserted suburban streets can't really do any good yet it's a small town so when anything goes on oh. yeah so i think that super important but they didn't have a lot of advertisement for the event so hopefully this is just the beginning of many more of the current or. me every year for bins mother sings the national anthem at the mile city rodeo it's a venue for youngsters just like her son to prove their mettle. everyone here knows her story and now charlotte general hopes that reaching out will help to address the tragic issue of suicide. yet.

when it comes to giving children opportunities in life education is key and yes around 263000000 children worldwide don't go to school the reasons are many some simply can't afford to send their kids to school there may be a lack of educational institutes or of teaches conflicts and crises also prevent children from getting an education in brazil most kids do go to school and yet according to the world bank more than a 5th of brazilians live in poverty one key reason is the lack of vocational training which is particularly acute among those living in remote parts of the country is rain forest. in the amazon region things reach local communities by boat even education. brazil's only

a popular way of becoming self employed in amazonian village is. unfortunately one single training ship is not enough for all the communities that need it that's why it would be important to get more projects like the floating book ational schools into service. after final exams the floating school will sail off to another town to help other young people realize their dreams. and this became a global idea as we find out how pedestrians and cyclists reclaiming india's streets the number of cars in the country has doubled over the past 10 years bus and train networks tend to be poorly developed and there are a few cycles. but now city planners in western india are determined to encourage
