More die from suicide than wars and murders

作者:佚名    文章来源:网络    点击数:    更新时间:2010-11-5

More people kill themselves each year than die from wars and murders combined, but most suicides could be prevented, according to two international suicide experts.

The news comes as the Geneva-based World Health Organization (WHO) marks World Suicide Prevention Day and amid a debate in Switzerland on the high number of gun suicides.


Some 20 million to 60 million people try to kill themselves each year, but only about a million of them succeed, said Dr Jose Manoel Bertolote, a mental health official at the WHO.

The ones who do end their lives "are tragic situations where help could have been provided", said Brian Mishara, president of the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) in Gondrin, France.

Suicide rates could be reduced if countries would limit access to pesticides, guns and medication and do a better job of treating people with depression, alcoholism and schizophrenia, Mishara said.

About a third of all suicides around the world are caused by pesticides, said Bertolote.

Dentists, veterinarians and doctors are particularly at risk for suicide – not because of their high-stress professions but because they have access to lethal chemicals and know how to handle them, Bertolote said.
