Suicide opinion Piece By: Jack

Depression kills 15% of people who are clinically diagnosed with depression,depression can cause all sorts of problems and one of them is suicide. Depression causes lots of these deaths. Depression is very hard on lots of people it is usually harder on children in schools where bullying can manifest.

Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University, Bullying causes most suicide deaths by far, it usually happens in schools or online, if it happens online but it is a person from the same school who is bullying them. Over time if the bully keeps on happening the children usually resort to suicide not knowing that there are other options.

People who abuse alcohol and/or drugs attempt to kill themselves nearly six times as frequently as people who don’t abuse these substances, , Alcohol and drug abuse are also another reason kids commit suicide. As you might know alcohol is a depressant that can make you depressed and if you already are i can make you further depressed. In Conclusion, these are very few of the reasons kids and teenagers commit suicide everyday and remember there's always another choice.
