Suicidal behaviour commonly accompanies a range of emotional disturbances such as bipolar disorders, depression and schizophrenia. Research has shown that almost 90% of suicides are connected to a or other psychiatric illness or mood disorder.

Suicidal behaviours can often result from an individual’s response to a situation that the person encounters and finds overwhelming. Examples of this could be emotional trauma, isolation, the death of a loved one, serious physical illness, unemployment, ageing, financial problems, feelings of guilt and a dependence or addiction to alcohol or other drug.

In the UK, suicide accounts for about 1% of all deaths each year. The elderly have the highest rate of suicide, but there has been a steady increase among adolescents.

Suicide is now the third leading cause of death for 15- to 19-year-olds, after accidents and homicide. Failed suicide attempts far outnumber completed suicides and many unsuccessful attempts are carried out in such a way to make rescue possible and are seen as a cry for help.

People suffering from suicidal feelings should always consult their GP in the first instance.
