SUICIDE STATISTICS!!!

“Let us work together for a world free of suicide”

Suicide is a global human problem. Suicide is a leading cause of death in the world. It accounts for great and unbelievable loss of human lives across the world! Approximately, there are about a million suicides worldwide every year. Suicide takes place in all regions of the world. Suicide has existed and been committed for centuries as far as humanity is concerned. But it is stoppable!

Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death in 15-19-year-olds globally in 2019 (https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/suicide). Suicide is a major public health problem which has a solution. Depression is associated with about 900,000 of these deaths. In the United States (U.S.), suicide is the tenth leading cause of death for all ages.

This WHO site (https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/suicide) also reported that 77% of global suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries in 2019 and further documented that “For every suicide there are many more people who attempt suicide. Ingestion of pesticide, hanging and firearms are among the most common methods of suicide globally.”

The suicide statistics are obtained from CDC site (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/suicide.htm) and suicide facts are obtained from save.org site (https://save.org/about-suicide/suicide-facts/): (1) Suicide is the 10th (tenth) leading cause of death in the United States (U.S.) for all ages. (2) Every day, that is daily, approximately 130 Americans die by suicide. (3) There is one (1) death by suicide in the United States (U.S.) every 11 minutes! (4) Depression affects 20-25% of Americans ages 18+ in a given year. (5) Suicide takes the lives of over 48,500 Americans every year. (6) The highest suicide rates in the US are among Whites, American Indians and Alaska Natives. (7) Only half (50%) of all Americans experiencing an episode of major depression receive treatment (8) 80% (eighty percent)-90% (ninety percent)) of people that seek treatment for depression are treated successfully using therapy and/or medication. (9) An estimated 285,000 (two hundred and eighty five thousand) each year become suicide survivors. (10) There is one (1) suicide for every estimated 25 (twenty five) suicide attempts. (11) There is one (1) suicide for every estimated 4 (four) suicide attempts in the elderly in the US.

The site Medical News Today (https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/282929#suicide) documented that Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among people aged 10-34 years. When a person dies by suicide, they may have lived with a mental health condition — such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder — for a long time as stated in Medical News Today (https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/282929#suicide).

It is ridiculous and alarming to know that every forty (40) seconds, someone loses their life to suicide. This statistic is made known by the new UN health agency report (https://news.un.org/en/story/2019/09/1045892) that one person dies by suicide every 40 seconds. However, it should be noted that with timely intervention, suicide is preventable.

In human history, suicide happens throughout the human existence. Between 100 million and 600 million people are considered to experience suicide bereavement
every year! Zero tolerance for suicide is possible.

SUICIDE BY AGE

Google search: In 2019, the suicide rates were higher among adults ages 45 to 54 years (19.60 per 100,000) and 55 to 64 years (19.41 per 100,000), with the rate highest among adults ages 85 years or older (20.12 per 100,000), the only age group with a rate increase from 19.07 in 2018 to 20.12 in 2019.

Google search: In August 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, a survey conducted by the CDC found that 25.5 percent of people aged between 18 and 24 have seriously contemplated suicide within the last 30 days. For the age group 25 to 44, it was 16 percent.

Suicide does more harm than good.  There is nothing good about suicide. It is evil. All the assumed benefits of suicide have lost contact with reality; in fact they are delusions. Discover everything about suicide and its symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments from this book. The preventive and curative treatments of suicide should involve and focus on three components that made of human being – body, soul and spirit because human being is tripartite (one person in 3 parts). Therefore the holistic treatment of suicide requires body, soul and spirit in order to have a genuine and permanent solution to the global human problem. This is the reason for this book.

As mentioned above in the suicide statistics – Suicide ranks as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and the second leading cause of death for children, adolescents, and young adults (15–24 years old). Globally, an estimated 1,000,000 people take their own lives annually.  This statistic calls for the holistic treatment of suicide which must involve all the senses of body, soul and spirit.

Much can be done to prevent suicide. Everyone can work together to stop suicide for good. We must all work together for a world that is free of suicide. Contribute your little effort to the noble goal to make society suicide – free.
