Suicide

Suicide

Suicide is a growing problem everywhere and the numbers tell a shocking story.

"While 79% of the world's suicides occurred in low- and middle-income countries, high-income countries had the highest rate, at 11.5 per 100,000" people, WHO said.

Estimated medical costs of Texas hospitalizations for suicide attempts average $8,849 per patient, or more than $95.6 million annually.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for people ages 15 to 29 and for every suicide that results in death, there are as many as 40 attempted suicides. On this day and month, and every day, it's important to take the time to educate ourselves. "It doesn't matter if you don't know anyone who is suicidal, these are life skills that will teach you to approach hard conversations with care and understanding and hopefully signpost them to the help they need".

"As well as providing access to services such as counselling, mental health first aiders and employee assistance programmes (EAPs), employers could take advantage of technology".

Levels of depression within the industry are thought to be increasing in the United Kingdom and suicide rates, particularly for males under 40, are among the highest in any occupational group.

This Version of Monopoly Gives Women an Edge
Instead, they put their money into inventions by women, from bulletproof vests to solar heating to chocolate chip cookies . Monopoly was created to inspire everyone, young and old as it spotlights women who have challenged the status quo".

Reporters covering this issue are encouraged to review the Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide (link is external) for important guidance on ways to communicate on suicide. The prevention states that early intervention can make a real difference.

Suicide Prevention Australia chief executive Nieves Murray said the findings are a "major wakeup call" to look beyond traditional health care responses. Most lives lost to suicide can be prevented. As WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus points out, every death is a tragedy for family, friends and colleagues. It's a day of collaborative efforts to help prevent tragic loss of life.

The campaign encourages people to visit Movember.com and post on social with #movember and #ManOfMoreWords hashtags, and to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (Lifeline) at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or text the Crisis Text Line (text HELLO to 741741).

If you are suffering from emotional strain or suicidal thoughts, seek professional help.

She said although a national suicide prevention strategy is in development under the Health Ministry, more resources are needed to provide adequate support to those directly and profoundly affected by suicide.

Twitter now has a dedicated reporting form for people threatening suicide or self-harm, and a specialised team who review these reports. Two in five felt they wouldn't get a promotion.
