This is a subject area that is still highly-stigmatised, as many people feel they cannot talk to people even close family and friends about how they are feeling. It may be a very minor problem, but we all know that even small minor problems can become so big, nobody could be expected to deal with them.
As many people die from suicide each year as die on our roads.
There's not a family in the country that hasn't been affected by suicide.
I was just wondering why we use the phrase "to commit suicide". Is it technically a crime and if so should we decriminalise it???
Is it true that there is only one suicide intervention centre(www.pieta.ie) in Dublin and if so why are there no other centres accross the country in Cork, Limerick, Galway, Waterford ???
Should there be a national forum on suicide and suicide pervention, so that it would help remove the stigma from the whole issue???
