The devastation of suicide

Suicide is devastating for everybody involved. It is a sensitive subject that has been avoided in the pastand is a well known problem in Mayo. Many people say the high rates of suicide in the west are due to the bad weather and many people living isolated in rural areas. They may not receive attention or have access to support agencies that deal with issues such as depression or suicide. Of course the reasons for suicide are impossible to pin-point as they are so personal to each victim. The only way the high suicide rates can be reduced is by now helping those that can still be helped, for example, people who have suicidal thoughts or inflict self harm. To have somebody available, in a comfortable environment, to lend a sympathetic ear to a person’s problems without them being criticised or judged would greatly help everyone and promote a healthy community for all.
