A major issue concerning government of any country today is suicides, the best way out a person finds to relive themselves from problems; finding hard to cope-up with life or facing a situation. However in case of Ireland, suicide still remains unthinkable issue.
Statistical reports suggest that in the year 2011, 525 suicides were committed, accounting for 11.4 per 100,000 of the population. It was highlighted that men were the ones, who majorly committed suicide.
The statistics have been obtained from Central Statistics Office Vital Statistics for 2011, in which each year, births, deaths and marriages are registered. It has been discovered that in the year 2011, there was an increase in suicides committed by males. Out of all the suicides committed, 84% of them were of men.
On the basis of the figures obtained, the Irish Association of Suicidology concluded that an international research exhibits that each year, there is a decline in job opportunities by 1% and at the same time, there is a rise in suicides by 0.78%.
It said, “Given the impact the economic downturn had had, especially on young males, it was not surprising that men were so at risk to suicide”. However, the association assured that there has always been a support for all those suffering from depression or distress.
