Understanding The Rise In Suicide Cases

Recent reports indicate a worrying increase in the number of suicide cases, with the police revealing that 468 cases were recorded in the first five months this year. We first take a look at the situation on the ground with Befrienders. Next, we explore how recent financial difficulties have been contributing to the situation. Finally, we look into why it's important for us to have a National Suicide Registry.
