Documentary : Say NO to Suicide


Every 40 Seconds One soul Commits suicide and dies, While you complete watching this Documentary, 90 souls would have killed themselves already. Our little efforts could save some unknown beautiful soul thousands of miles away. It could help your friend or a neighbor or someone your own family. Spread Awareness about suicide and save Souls!

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that each year approximately one million people die from suicide, which represents a global mortality rate of 16 people per 100,000 or one death every 40 seconds. It is predicted that by 2020 the rate of death will increase to one every 20 seconds.

The WHO further reports that:

In the last 45 years suicide rates have increased by 60% worldwide. Suicide is now among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15-44 (male and female). Suicide attempts are up to 20 times more frequent than completed suicides.

Although suicide rates have traditionally been highest amongst elderly males, rates among young people have been increasing to such an extent that they are now the group at highest risk in a third of all countries.

Mental health disorders (particularly depression and substance abuse) are associated with more than 90% of all cases of suicide.

However, suicide results from many complex sociocultural factors and is more likely to occur during periods of socioeconomic, family and individual crisis (e.g. loss of a loved one, unemployment, sexual orientation, difficulties with developing one’s identity, disassociation from one’s community or other social/belief group, and honour).

The WHO also states that:

In Europe, particularly Eastern Europe, the highest suicide rates are reported for both men and women.

The Eastern Mediterranean Region and Central Asia republics have the lowest suicide rates.

Nearly 30% of all suicides worldwide occur in India and China.

Suicides globally by age are as follows: 55% are aged between 15 to 44 years and 45% are aged 45 years and over

Youth suicide is increasing at the greatest rate.

In the US, the Centre of Disease Control and Prevention reports that:

  • Overall, suicide is the eleventh leading cause of death for all US Americans, and is the third leading cause of death for young people 15-24 years.
  • Although suicide is a serious problem among the young and adults, death rates continue to be highest among older adults ages 65 years and over.
  • Males are four times more likely to die from suicide than are females. However, females are more likely to attempt suicide than are males.

Thanks to Anne who recently brought the necessity of sharing something about Suicide and Help people with wonderful gift we can ever give to them “The Life”. The one time life is a precious gift we all have and it is sad that we end it without knowing what it leaves behind us as well as for our beloved ones. Anne shared a lot of information on Suicide, warning signs, risk factors and helpline for ones with suicidal thoughts here on her blog and she appreciates her fellow bloggers who share the awareness with their readers with some beautiful awards. Hope we share the message!

  1. Dinesh – Thank you for bringing this front and center to your readers. As you mention, suicide is a global issue. My blog outlines signs of suicide, what to do – and offers links with additional support information. http://annesquared.wordpress.com/2013/09/04/accept-an-award-save-a-life-part-1/ is the best starting place in my blog – the article is in 2 sections. There is another link which is multi-country (global), not USA focused as my blog is.

    If any of your readers would like to pick up the torch (perhaps an award) from my site, since you graciously declined, but kept the light along, please have them do so. Any questions, I am glad to answer.

    Again, thank you for passing along this valuable information.

    1. Hi Anne, I have not declined, what i tried to say is I would be glad to join your cause but I was not specific about any recognition. I really had no intention to deny your initiatives.

      In fact I am not sure that I have done anything that much great to receive an award like that. Also still i am a novice writer / blogger.

      I would be glad to use it. 🙂 Just tell me, do i need to save that image (versatile blogger) and display in my sidebar right? Linking it to your post. Correct me if i am wrong.. I will do it gladly for you being so kind to all people.

      1. I am thrilled you have accepted it. Most people display them in the sidebar. (I still am trying to figure out how to work the menu. lol.)
        Go to my page with the Versatile logo, right click, save it to your PC. Then decide where you would like to put it and add it as you would another image – if it is in a widget, I believe people use different ones. That is about all there is to it. But you should also post it, then, in your post about suicide, so your readers know the award is coming from you. In this issue, I don’t mind the sharing. This is a learning experience for you.
        If there is a blog you admire for its versatility, please, pass it along, and refer them to the instructions on my page.
        These awards are for the novice bloggers who are gaining experience and demonstrating growth, gaining recognition with their peers. Congratulations.
