Suicide Facts

 

*) Suicide is the leading cause of death among men under the age of thirty-five.

 

*) Suicide rates vary widely depending on where you are in the world. For instance, if you live in Greenland you are twenty-seven time more likely to kil yourself than if you live in Greece.

 

*) A million people a year kill themselves. Between ten and twenty million people a year try to. Worldwide, men are over three times more likely to kill themselves than women.

This is page 54. At this point I check the title. Yes... "Reasons to stay alive." - by page 70 it hasn't got any better. Please... kill me now...
