Default Suicide

The suicide rate for girls and young women in the U.S. continues to rise, at a pace far faster than for young males... Some experts believe the trend was ignited by the economic recession from December 2007 until June 2009.

What a waste. Whatever the problem, if they had just waited for a few days, maybe their situation could have been resolved.

Teen and preteen suicide may have a direct relationship in accessing mental health services and medication. The better the availability, the higher the suicide rate. New Zealand's rate (as of 2012) was highest in the developed world. There's a "black box warning" on SSRI's.

--------------------
SSRI Induced Suicide - Mad In America

The key difference between these populations is not their diagnosis but their contact with mental health professionals. New Zealand data shows the The majority (75%) of those who die by suicide have contact with primary-care providers in the year prior to death, and one third have contact with mental health services. In the final month before death, 49% of suicide victims have contact with mental health services.

I think the main culprits are feeble, easily manipulated minds and their standing in the social media sites, and blabbing to everyone who does not give a f**k in the first place about how many times so and so had sex and how many selfies were taken, and how dare some silly video did not go viral, et cetera. Take a look at any social pig sty like InYourFaceBook or something just as stupid, and you will see what types of dorks, male and female, migrate there.

Economic recession has about zero to do with it, at the least.

not at first glance but the added stressors a down economy puts on a life and the lives of those connected to you...

Maybe it's something Monsanto was trying for a few years on our lettuce.

I totally agree with this.

I think I mentioned before about the young man who committed suicide who played for our hometown football team.

He did it because a rumour started on Facebook that he was gay, and he wasn't.

How sad is that?

Maybe it was climate. Maybe the increase in obesity and the obsession for meeting model type standards. What it probably is is the lack of real men like myself. They are surrounded by the whining pansies we encounter all to frequently some places. Ya know?
