Every 40 seconds a suicide takes place somewhere in the world. But, the World Health Organization says only a few countries have policies aimed at suicide prevention. The United Nations agency released a report about the issue on September 10th. The WHO report says suicide is a major international health problem. And the experts say about 75 percent of suicides happen in low-and middle-income countries. The WHO says the highest rates of suicide are found in Central and Eastern Europe and in some Asian countries. It says suicide rates in Africa appear to be lower. The WHO report also says suicide rates are highest in people over the age of 70. So, what leads people to kill themselves? The International Association for Suicide Prevention says studies have shown that being alone a lot can increase the risk of suicide. They say that having strong connections to others can help protect against suicide. The IASP says simply reaching out to people who have become disconnected from others may be a life-saving act. The WHO Director of Mental Health and Substance Abuse says there is much more that communities can do to provide support. Shekhar Saxena says suicide is the final decision for people who are feeling alone, depressed and hopeless. Often, these people reach out for help. Mr. Saxena explains how people can do more to provide support for people who find themselves at the lowest point in life. The World Health Organization is calling for nations to cancel laws that make suicide a crime. It says people who try to kill themselves need mental health treatment not prison.
