Video: At Rock Bottom? Show Resilience!
According to the World Health Organisation, W.H.O., more than 700 000 people die by suicide every year. Furthermore, for each suicide, there are more than 20 suicide attempts.
Suicides and suicide attempts have a ripple effect that impacts families, friends, colleagues, communities and societies.
Also, the National Library of Medicine states that approximately 75% of suicides occur in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) where rates of poverty are high. Evidence suggests a relationship between economic variables and suicidal behaviour.
However, people need not give up no matter the challenges, a little push here and there could make a difference even when you seem to be at rock bottom.
