Every year, more than 800,000 people die from suicide; this roughly corresponds to 1 death
every 40 seconds. Suicide is among the three leading causes of death among those aged
15-44 years in some countries, and the second leading cause of death in the 10-24 years
age group; these figures do not include suicide attempts which can be many times more
frequent than suicide (10, 20, or more times according to some studies).
Suicide worldwide was estimated to represent 1.3% of the total global burden of disease. Mental disorders (particularly depression and alcohol use disorders) are a major risk factor for suicide in
Europe and North America; however, in Asian countries impulsiveness plays an important
role. Suicide is complex with psychological, social, biological, cultural and environmental
factors involved. (Courtesy: World Health Organization)
