World Suicide Prevention Day: Youths call for good morals

-

- Advertisment -

Some youths have called for high self-esteem and good morals as this would reduce the rate of suicide among young persons.

The Youths made the call in separate interviews in Abuja as the world commemorates the “World Suicide Prevention Day’’.

A Youth, Luggard Okonobo, said the reasons for committing suicide differ from person to person as some got involved in suicide as a result of depression and frustration.

Another youth, Tayo Shuiabu, said the extent of depression by an individual does not warrant suicide, although stigmatisation had allowed suicide by some.

An unemployed youth, Theophilus Audu, called for more job opportunities for graduates, saying this would check crime and frustration.

A nurse, Kikelomo Oni, said the decision to commit suicide was often motivated by the presence of a painful terminal illness from which little or no hope of recovery exists.
