8.6% of youth in grades 9-12 reported that they had made at least one suicide attempt in the past 12 months.
AS HIGH SCHOOLERS, WE THINK ...
BUT AN ALTRUIST WILL NOT BELIEVE SO
Stress is the most common cause that leads to youth suicide, especially stress from families and parents about scores and school works.
That is why we believe that parents are also responsible for their children's death because of the pressures that their sons & daughter have had
As an altruist, they are unselfish and selfless concern for the well-being of others.
So in this scenario, they would say the parents are trying to maximise their children's opportunities in the future.
An investigation of 130 suicide cases of under 20 bereavement, physical illness, school pressures and bullying were among the themes associated with their deaths.
IS IT MORALLY RIGHT/WRONG TO COMMIT SUICIDE ?
It is right in some scenarios. Because I believe that we all have our rights to decide our life, our futures. Suicide is also considered as a method to escape from stresses and suffers. So numbers of people might choose peaceful death over life.
But SUICIDE IS NOT THE ONLY OPTION .
Suicide is illegal and also morally wrong.
It is morally worng because of the effects, and sorrow that it leave behind. Not only your families are effected but it also give out bad influences.
How to prevent it ?
Having knowledge about this problems will help preventing it, and turn down the bad influences.
Noticing the signs such as depression, being bullied, hurting themselves, dramatic changes,..
Do not be shy to show how you feel, or talk to friends, families, talk about IT.
Everyone should have knowledge about suicide
I have lots of friends that have depressions, stress from schools and parents. THey just want to make their parents proud of them but it is never enough. That is the reason why they never feel condifent about themselves, leads to depression. Too much depression leads to disapointment about themselves, which leads to suicide - escape from everything
