Chances Choices Changes
Suicide is the act of intentionlly causing one's own death. Depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorder and substance abuse may lead a person to commit suicide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), close to 800,000 people die to suicide every year, which is one person every 40 seconds. Suicide is a global phenomenon; infact 79% of suicide occurs in low and middle-income countries around the world.
Because of the increasing ratings of suicide attempts of people around the world, our group decides to petition that suicide is not as option to protect ourselves from hurting. Our group aims to inform people what are the consequences of commiting suicide. Yes, suicide can't be stopped with certainty but risk can often be reduces with timely intervention. A suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. People who take their lives don't want to die, they just want to stop hurting. We can help them to find ways to lessen their pain by staying by their side and help them to give them advice for them to choose the right thing to do rather than ending their life. Talking to a person who wants to commit suicide may change their perception in life and give them another chance to live their life again. Professionals suggest that the best way to prevent suicide is to know the risk factors, be alert to the signs of depression and other mental disorder and intervene before the person can complete the process of self-destruction. We should always remember that suicide prevention starts with recognizing the warning signs and taking them seriously. If you think a friend or a family member is considering suicide, you might be afraid to bring up the subject but talking openly about suicidal thoughts and feelings can save a life.
Our group is going to create a change.org petition, a facebook group for us to achieve our goal. We will also use some infographics pictures and added informations to support our campaign. Our group will consume a week to develope tje website. Our expenses may only conclude the internet and computer rentals in case we need more time outside school hours
