Suicide by CherryRivera: 8:55am On Feb 12, 2019
Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one's own death. The reasons behind a suicide or attempted suicide can be complex and it leaves devastating families and friends to question why? And wonder if they if they could have done something to prevent it. Here are some key facts according to WHO

Close to 800 000 people die due to suicide every year.

For every suicide there are many more people who attempt suicide every year. A prior suicide attempt is the single most important risk factor for suicide in the general population.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15–29-year-olds.

79% of global suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries.

Ingestion of pesticide, hanging and firearms are among the most common methods of suicide globally.

You may wonder 'why would I ever consider suicide? ' Well in my opinion suicide should never be an option but do you know that many suicides happen impulsively in moments of crisis with a breakdown in the ability to deal with life stresses, such as financial problems, relationship break-up or chronic pain and illness? Some religion even culture support suicide.

Japanese has the highest number of suicide rates in the world because some suicides are considered to be honorable. Hinduism accepts a man's right to end one's life through the non-violent practice of fasting to death, termed Prayopavesa. But Prayopavesa is strictly restricted to old age yogis who have no desire or ambition left, and no responsibilities.
A person may become suicidal if he or she is dealing with the following .
Depression. This is without question the most common reason people commit suicide. The pain of existence often becomes too much for severely depressed people to bear. The state of depression warps their thinking, allowing ideas like "Everyone would all be better off without me" to make rational sense. Other causes of suicide includes,
Bipolar disorder
Anxiety Disorder
