    Default Suicide Rate in Malaysia

    Although it is estimated that Malaysia has eight to 12 suicides per 100,000 people a year, the figures could be more.

    The sentence above is quoted from Professor T. Maniam of the Psychiatric Department, Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in NST.

    http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/N...le/indexb_html

    This would translate to 2000-3000 suicides a year in Malaysia, with the 25 million population. This is a staggering statistic.

    Anyone has any thoughts on this?

    We could analyze more about the staggering number of suicide rate. How many percentage out of the total suicide is by a person with mental illness, by teenage, and adult?

    Dasar Pandang Timur? You mean the eastern people is prone to commit suicide due to certain reasons, don't you. How true is it?
    Just know that Singapore and Japan is hot with cases on student commiting suicide out of failure in academic:(

    an excerption from an article in The Japan times


    record 34,327 people commited suicide in Japan last year.

    The figure, up 7.1 percent from the previous year, remained above 30,000 for the sixth consecutive year, the National Police Agency said in a report released Thursday.

    The report says 8,897 people killed themselves over financial difficulties, up 12.1 percent from a year earlier and topping 8,000 for the first time since the NPA began keeping statistics on suicides in 1978




    34 thousand!!!!!!!!!and there's some sort of forum on the net..(in japanese)...that advertise 'suicide partners'.these are people who wants to commit suicide but would prefer not to do alone....so they advertise it on the net .

    eg:....jump off a cliff together.....etc2.....

    Crazy japanese...( to those concerned only)

    no wonder their suicide number is so high ~34000 per year as compared to our country 2000~3000 case per year.
    i think the internet must be one of the factor of promoting suicide among japanese. I am sick of that:(
    but hold on...japan is much larger than Malaysia. So perhaps if we take into account too the number of population, the rate may become similar with our rate.
