Mokgwa wa go leka kgotsa go itseela matshelo ga basha le Mme Nkhabele Marumo – Clinical Psychologist

This week has been aside to commemorate and strengthen attempts in prevention of teen suicides. Teenagers can be regarded as a bit of complicated and fragile group of people, subjected to pressure and the struggle to trying to find themselves for who they really are. Hence when pressure gets too much for them, they end up resorting to suicide.
According to WHO, a suicide occurs every 40 seconds and an attempt is made every 3 seconds. In South African, hanging is the most frequently employed method of suicide, followed by shooting, gazing and burning.
