According to a survey of 15,431 depression sufferers over the past two years, people in their 20s accounted for 37.6 per cent of the total number. People in their 30s made up 22.7 per cent. Around 40 per cent of those surveyed had university degrees…

A report from the Ministry of Health last month showed that suicide is the fifth most common cause of death, but the main one for people aged between 20 and 35.
