Gymha Australia And Nbr Nigeria Collaborate To End Suicide by Recordbreakers: 4:41pm On Nov 27, 2023
By Prof David David

Suicide is a widespread occurrence that has serious repercussions for the dying individual, their family, the community, and society as a whole. Nearly a million people commit suicide each year, and 80% of suicides worldwide occur in low- and middle-income nations, despite being avoidable.

With a suicide rate of 17.3 per 100,000 people, Nigeria, a country with a population of over 200 million, is among the world's epicenters of suicide. This rate is greater than the estimates for the entire globe (10.5 per 100,000 people) and Africa (12.0 per 100,000 people). Global statistics show that the number of suicides in the nation has increased since 2012.

Furthermore, Nigeria has been reporting the greatest number of cases of depression in Africa at the moment. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic and the lack of a vital statistics system, suicide is glaringly underreported and under documented in Nigeria, as it is in many other developing nations.

The taboo and cultural and religious beliefs surrounding suicide in Nigeria also obscure the lack of statistics. Suicide deaths are typically stigmatized and denied social possibilities because they are thought to be wicked, forbidden, and the result of demonic forces.

Individuals would rather conceal the cause of death, classifying suicides as murders or accidents. A large number of the documented cases rely on police and hospital records, both of which may have been skewed by the grieving and are therefore not exhaustive. Section 327 of Nigeria's Criminal Code states that suicide is still illegal yet, suicide is still not widely discussed in our society.

Suicide and other mental health disorders have not received enough attention, despite an increase in suicide instances among all socioeconomic classes and age groups in the nation, including working-class citizens, university students, and the elderly and young.

For this reason, GYMHA Australia and NBR Nigeria are working together at the 2023 world-class Online Stress Management Revolutions Summit to put an end to suicide and other mental health tragedies.

More than sixty speakers and panelists, including well-known neurologists, psychologists, humanitarians, and political figures, will be present at the summit. In addition to interesting activities, virtual exhibition displays, and more, you'll get access to over 100 on-demand webinars.

The main goals of the summit are to introduce attendees to stress and its causes, teach them how to manage stress while leading healthy lives, and offer networking opportunities with professionals in stress management. Our goal is to remove all forms of stigma and discrimination from people, especially those who are dealing with severe mental health concerns, like Suicide.

This event is especially designed for you if you have any concerns about suicide or managing any mental health challenges like stress, anger, anxiety, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), borderline personality disorder (BPD), depression, dissociation/dissociative disorders, eating problems, etc. Mental health factors like stress, substance abuse, severe depression, grief, and so on are factors that greatly contribute to suicide.
