Reasons for suicide
Across the globe, suicide is one of the causes of death among which can occur across the board. In the Philippines, deaths caused by intentional self-harm had nearly doubled during the global pandemic in 2020.
Certain factors contribute to the increase in the suicide rate, such as are depression, bullying, death of a loved one, and trauma. These factors deliver high-risk behavior among individuals suffering from mental health illness, and the majority consume drugs and drink excessive alcohol.
In the Philippines, talking about mental illness is not very common and people tend to shy away from discussing it due to the stigma connected to this topic.
