Suicidal behaviour in the world and in South Africa has reached critical proportions. This cuts cross all ethnic, gender and age groups. A disturbing shift has emerged, as increasingly more young and black South Africans are affected. This book explores why individuals succumb to suicidal behaviour. The book: examines and updates current statistics that provide clues to the circumstances surrounding suicidal behaviour; questions the misconceptions associated with such behaviour; offers prevention and management solutions; and, suggests further research needs. It is extremely important to educate healthcare workers and the general public on preventing suicide. The price of neglecting this is too high. The information contained in this book will help to equip readers to deal with issues surrounding suicidal behaviour.
