Let's leave apart health problems, which are a increasing the mortality rates. Give a thought about certain other factors, which contribute to this rise. One main aspect that strikes is suicide, yes, of course, many youth, middle-age people end up their lives each year.
Considering the seriousness of the issue, this Monday was set as World Suicide Prevention Day by World Health Organization. On the same day, Lifeline launched its Out of the Shadows campaign.
Lifeline is a phone counseling service, which is run at the national level, helping our millions of depressed people. In the past one year, the service has counseled almost half a million Australians.
The hotline service asserted that they have never answered these many calls in a year. On August 21, the counselors attended as many as 1893 calls, which was a record.
Lifeline national patron and former NSW politician John Brogden said, "The figures showed more people were getting help, but suicide risk in Australia was hitting crisis point. More people will die from suicide this year than will die in car accidents". However, he asserted that the figures are stable: neither are they increasing in Australia nor are they declining.
Mr. Brogden asserted that even tried to commit suicide, but thanks to all who supported him, due to which, he is still alive.
