Suicide is rapidly becoming a major problem in the United States and the world at large. According to statistics, nearly one million people worldwide commit suicide each year.
According to reports an estimated number of about 100 people lose their lives every single day in the United States alone as a result of suicide.
These same statistics further went to show that over 32,000 people die by suicide each year in the United States. Some 1,500 unsuccessful suicide attempts occur each day in this same country. Many people were totally shocked when these suicide figures were revealed to the public, wondering why the menace of suicide is on the rise.


It is also reported that nearly a million people worldwide commit suicide each year that passes. Many experts believe that these suicide figures above are just an estimate and that the true number of suicides is certainly higher than these figures above. According to them, the reason they believe that the figures are higher is simply because of the fact that some deaths that occur in which people tend to believe are accidents can in actual fact be sheer suicides. Experts say that accidental deaths like drug overdose or even certain car accidents are usually not recognized as suicides by police but majority of them, if investigated carefully would show them to be suicides.


Looking at these frightening figures, one cannot deny the fact that suicide is seriously becoming a major public health problem in the United States and the world over.
Our statics also revealed that suicide is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States amongst people aged between 18 and 65 years.
Although suicide can occur to any and anyone, there are certain types of people that are at a higher risk of attempting suicide than anyone else. These are people who are normally plagued with mental illnesses or people who are exposed to suicide.
According to researches, males are more likely to commit suicide than females.
