Chinese Youth ‘Face Suicide Risk’

From BBC News:

An association in China says that suicide is the leading cause of death among young people.

The Chinese Association for Mental Health says young people aged between 15 and 34 are more likely to die at their own hand than by any other means.

The suicide rate is reported to be higher in the countryside than cities, with more women taking their own lives.

The report was published in advance of World Suicide Prevention Day, taking place on Wednesday.
