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.
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?
