World suicide prevention day

The World Suicide Prevention Day is observed on September 10 worldwide that is organised by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) to promote actions for eradication of suicide culture to protect the human lives. This Day gives every organization, government authority and individual a chance to promote awareness about suicide occurrence and its prevention in our society.
The World Suicide Prevention Day compelled me to highlight the issue of teenager’s suicide that is on the rise in Pakistan that greatly affects the society. The Human Right Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) reported that, every year 25% of girls and boys under the age of 14 to 18 commit suicide. Actually, suicide attempt is sign of extreme stress because the expectations are more from the families who finally disappoint them by discouragement and ignorance.
So, government as well as families are humbly requested to rise to the occasion to check suicide culture at an early stage. The young generation’s due rights and proper demands should be fulfilled in order to protect their lives
