According to Andy Kiersz “Here Are The Countries With The Worst Suicide Rates”

 The most common places that people commit suicide is in Asia and Eastern Europe. But in Lithuania it has the highest suicide rate among the countries.                   

In April, 21, 2014, 28.6 suicide deaths per 100,000 people but each year 44,965 Americans die by suicide.

 But what about the suicide in the U.S.? Well the annual age-adjusted suicide rate is 13.42 per 100,000 individuals, but men die by suicide 3.53 times more often than women. On average, there are 123 suicides per day, white males accounted for 7 out of 10 suicides in 2016.

Firearms account for 51% of all suicides in 2016, but the rate of suicide is highest in middle age-white men in particular. Also suicide is the 8th leading cause of death overall in Washington. On average one person dies by suicide every 8 hours in the state.

What ages do people mostly commit suicide.? Well the first leading cause of deaths for ages 10-14. The second leading cause of death for ages 15-34. The third leading cause of death for ages 35-44.

Why do some people commit suicide? Some people commit suicide because of too much depression. Psychotic Disorder Due to another Medical Condition and their impulsieve. Also because they try to cry out for help and don’t know where to get it. As they have a desire to die or because they made a huge mistake.

What makes you think of suicide so often? Suicidal thought are caused because of grief, sexual abuse, financial problems, remorse, rejection, relationship breakup and unemployment.

What do you think about suicide? As i hear the word suicide the first thing that comes up in mind is that someone had killed themselves and will try to figure out who had commited suicide. Another thing that comes up in mind is “why?” why have they commited suicide?

When someone has thoughts of suicide, I ask myself why do they think of suicide if it’s just not the right thing to do. Why don’t they look for help but now that I know the more I can understand why some people think of suicide. Some people think that suicide is the solution but it’s not. Suicide is never the solution to your problems getting help will be the solution because the only people that you will hurt if you commit suicide is the people that love you.

How can you help a suicidal person? A suicidal person may not ask for help but it doesn’t mean that you can’t help them. People who take their lives don’t want to die they just want to stop hurting. You know when someone wants to commit suicide when you see the warning signs wich means alot of depression and so much sadness and they start to cut themselves and keep saying that they want to die and to leave them alone.  But the first step to help a suicidal person is to talk to them and convince them to stop. The Second step is if they don’t stop then to tell their parents and help them get in a Suicide Prevention Hotline. The third step is, if they don’t stop and still want to commit suicide then call 911.
