Are the suicide cases increasing exponentially or is it that now with the internet, fast media and reporting these cases are being brought to the attention of the general public raising awareness to a severe problem that has been neglected for far too long.
Recently a student of Bahria University Islamabad committed suicide because of receiving heavy discrimination and unfair grading from one or more professors. Sometime in the past, another graduate from NUST took his life due to unemployment. These are just examples, otherwise, there is a plethora of such cases often involving youngsters.
Unfortunately, the government hasn’t paid much heed to this growing epidemic. No mental health care facilities have been announced nor any steps towards spreading awareness have been taken about mental illnesses and how to spot them within your own group of loved ones. Although not all suicide cases have a mental illness to blame, sometimes the reasons are entirely different.
Nonetheless, this should be taken into account not just on an administrative level but also by the private health care institutes. The incidents are increasing at an alarming rate and this next story will also leave you sad and dejected.
