  • Choose Life!

    Suicide cannot be undone. Life may be hard right now but whatever the difficulties you are facing at the moment, will pass. And the life ahead of you - it cannot be all bad, there will be good times and think of the good things that you are passing up on if you decide to end it all now.
    You don’t have to go through your difficulties alone. Let your family or friends help you. Or, speak to your school’s counsellor or your family doctor who will be able to get you the help you need.

    Suicide is among the top three causes of death among young people aged 15 to 35 years old. For every completed suicide, there would be about 15 attempted suicides. More than half of those who committed suicide had made previous attempts. One in 10 who attempted will try again within one year or commit suicide at a later stage.

    While more women attempt suicide than men, more men commit suicide than women. The reasons for suicide range from relationship or family problems, to academic stress, financial difficulties and marital problems.
