SUICIDE CASE IN JAMMU: Suicide is the self-inflicted death people commit to ending their lives and escaping reality. Many people around you commit suicide. Depression and suicide are rampant in today’s time and are a growing issue of concern. Depression is an illness that pushes a person to commit self-harm or even commit suicide. It is not easy to predict who it will be. Mostly the youths think about attempting suicide statistically.

Depression and Stress 

Suicide is a continuously talked about topic in our society. There are multiple papers, books, journals, and other documents that discuss the topic. These topics discuss the personal experiences of a person who was suicidal or had to face the horror of losing a near and dear person to suicide.

Suicide is a terrible killer of the young. In the United States, suicide is the third major cause of death in 15-to-19-year-olds and the second leading cause of death in college-age students. Suicide kills the young dreadfully and disproportionately and, across the world, in those between the ages of 15 and 44. Suicide is the second leading killer of women and the fourth of men.

Mental disorders

Most people who commit suicide try to commit suicide to suffer from mental disorders like depression, irritability, agitation, and sheer hopelessness.

More than 90 percent of all people who kill themselves suffered from a major psychiatric or addictive illness (depression, manic-depression, schizophrenia, or alcohol and drug abuse), a severe anxiety disorder, or borderline or antisocial personality disorder.
