Top-5 Countries by Suicide Rates

Suicide is an action cursed by many, but also committed by many. The act of killing oneself is not welcome in any culture, although there may be exceptions. There are countries like Holland or Switzerland, though, where you may have a euthenasia legally, under certain conditions.

NHS sources state that a general vulnerability to suicide, a disturbed mental health and problematic social or economic conditions are the commonest causes of suicide [1].

So what is the effect of suicides in terms of numbers? How much of the world population commit suicide? “
