It has been reported that the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration have issued a grant of $1.44 million for helping authorities in preventing suicide cases. The advent of recession and inflation has boosted the suicide rates.
The Alaska Division of Behavioral Health has been provided with the grant with the hope that the money will be utilized towards improving the quality of life of people so that suicides could be prevented. Increased suicide cases are a sign of depressed population.
The ongoing wrath of recession has left many with unanswered questions. People have lost their jobs and faith that in turn has isolated them from the society. Isolation is yet again a cause behind increased suicide rates.
The Director of Behavioral Health Division, Melissa Stone said that the grant money will be utilized in helping “groups statewide offer suicide prevention training and develop prevention resources for their communities. Teaching Alaskans that suicide is preventable and giving them the tools to help be part of the solution is crucial to preventing suicide among youth in Alaska”.
The youths are increasingly committing suicide. It is hoped that the initiative taken up by the authorities will help them in preventing suicide cases.
