Child suicides high in Shanghai

From China Daily: “Study says 1 in 4 youths thinks about taking own life in Shanghao.

A recent study revealed that one-quarter of the children (ages 8 to 15) in China’s wealthiest city have considered taking their own lives. Perhaps more surprising is that the results were made public.

Long a taboo topic in China, particularly when it comes to young people, suicide is becoming part of public discussion, opening the doors to education and prevention in a country with a suicide rate more than twice that of the United States. ”
