Average of 60 suicides per month in the country

PETALING JAYA: Two people commit suicide daily in Malaysia and experts believe the figure could be higher with the many undetermined deaths.

It is alarming that teenagers and young adults are taking their own lives in the face of mounting pressure in school, work, dealing with family issues and breakdown in relationships.

The National Suicide Registry Malaysia (NSRM) estimated that between January and August last year, a total of 425 people committed suicide, averaging 60 per month (including undetermined deaths.)

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Professor of Psychology Dr T. Maniam said the country’s suicide rate was estimated at 10 to 13 per 100,000 people which nearly equalled that of the United States.

The Health Ministry has identified those aged between 16 and 25 as being “high risk.”
