Suicide is a major public health concern. Over 40,000 people die by suicide each year and it is the 10th leading cause of death in the world today.
SUICIDE is complicated and tragic but it is often preventable.
A suicidal person may not seek or ask for any help but it doesn't mean that they didn't need or want some. People take their lives don't want to die- they just want to end their pain; to stop hurting.
Prior to this, Millenials are the one who mostly suffer from suicidal thoughts and feelings nowadays. Social media is the leading platforms of this nowadays. Especially facebook, where posts like
"I'm not fine." "I want to die,"
"Just kill me please,"
"Auq nuah mabuhai (I don't wanna live anymore) and "Uxto quh na mamatay," are too famous and abrupted easily. Maybe, reading this words or posts made your eyebrows arch, it made you think that they just post it for being famous or something like being the talk of the town or bida-bida. And a lot of netizens comment to this posts, some does counselling, and the rest gave their hate sentiments, bash them, insult them, laugh at them, and let the one who post do their suicidal visions and mission.
Little did we know, this "papansins" were seeking for help, for care, and for another reason to live. And by just giving a comment like " Then die," triggers them a lot. It's like an alarm, waking them up on the nightmare to face another nightmare.
We, the SALBA (Suicide Awareness: Lightens up the Burdens of Aftermaths) tasked ourselves to make a move to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma and serve as a family, friend and anyone who suicidal people can talk to.
Any living thing on Earth deserve to live their lives the fullest. Suicide is not chosen; it happens when pain exceeds resources for coping with pain. Suicide is neither right or wrong; it is not defect of character; it is morally neutral. It is simply imbalance of pain versus coping sources.
Now, come to think of it. People often turn to suicide because they are seeking for relief. Let us all serve as the people out of there blacking world who can be with them on horrible time, won't judge them, argue with them, send them to hospitals, and tryhard speaker and listener to them.
By supporting this petition, everyone is step forward in waking the suicidal people out of their nightmares and making them choose to live so they can feel the relief they want that only alive ones can feel.
