WITH problems teenagers are faced with today suicide seems to be the solution to make it all go away.

The problems we are faced with becomes so unbearable that we think taking our life will solve it, but as we all know it, this does the complete opposite and causes even more problems.

Many teenagers do not realise the effect it has on their family and community, and for the same reason the number of teenage deaths today is at an unbelievable high. So one has to ask what the reasons are. Why do they kill themselves and what really causes them to go to such an extreme.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health scientific evidence has shown that almost all people who takes their own life has been diagnosed with several mental disorders or substance-abuse disorders and the majority have more than just one disorder. In other words the feelings that often lead to suicide are treatable.

The third leading cause of death among young people between the ages of 15 and 24, suicide has become an eye-opener on which a lot of well-needed attention is being focused.

Lastly, suicide among the youth, youths who vulnerable to self-destructive emotions, should indulge comprehensive discussion of concerns because teenage suicide is most tragic­.
