Suicide takes away 1,12,320 lives in India every year leaving families without bread earners, children without parents and depriving us of our loved ones and friends. We need to take effective steps right now to stop this growing menace.
Suicide is not limited to any specific agegroup, sex or economic background. Human emotions are the same the world over. Pain and feeling are the same but circumstances differ. Despair, pain, anxiety, loneliness and suicide have no geographical boundaries and make no racial distinction. “I cannot go on living with things the way they are” is spoken in every language. Tears need no translation.
Suicidal feelings are not permanent. If a suicidal person is given support for 24 to 72 hours, he can get back to the mainstream of life. Very often, helping the person to ventilate and talk about his innermost fears can alleviate the pain.
SUICIDE IS AN ACT OF DELIBERATELY ENDING ONE’S OWN LIFE
Suicidal behaviour often occurs in response to a situation that the person views as overwhelming such as social isolation, death of a loved one, emotional trauma, serious physical illness, aging, unemployment, financial problems, guilt feelings or dependence on alcohol or other drugs.
