Mental health organizations are continuing to urge people to learn about the warning signs of depression and the ways we can help prevent more deaths from suicide.

"We are predicting that the federal government's $15 million investment in improved and co-ordinated data collection and retrieval will reveal a higher official suicide rate than now recorded", the report says. "So, there seems to be a disconnect in terms of the awareness and actually the comfort for men to actually open up and talk about their mental health in the workplace".

The Chief of the Mental Health Unit of the Ministry of Health, Samah Jabr, recommended in his report the introduction of mental health courses and counselling in Islamic faculties to train religious scholars in psychological counselling.

In teenage boys, suicide ranked third behind road injury and interpersonal violence.

Distressingly, for every suicide there are many more people who attempt suicide every year. In the WHO's Americas region, for example, rates rose by 6 percent in between 2010 and 2016.

Other statistics show more people have taken their own lives in Northern Ireland since the Good Friday Agreement than were killed during the Troubles between 1969 and 1997.

'Suicides are preventable, ' said the WHO's director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The poll also found Australians were most concerned about issues such as cost of living and personal debt (62%) and economic and job security (52%) as key drivers of suicide heading into the next decade, and considered young people (12-24) and middle-aged Australians (25-55) most at risk.

Pesticides are commonly used and usually result in death because they are so toxic, have no antidotes, and are often used in remote areas where there is no nearby medical help. "In Sri Lanka, for instance, bans are thought to have led to 93,000 fewer suicide deaths between 1995 and 2015".

In the U.S., recent research from Ohio State University found that suicide rates have increased by as much as 40 percent since 1999. "So that's why it's really important up here in this rural area to make sure that we're really connecting and talking with people about what we have to offer".

Barnardos says that through services like 0800 What's Up and its wider work in the mental health arena working with children, young people and their families and whānau, it will continue contributing to preventing suicide in Aotearoa.
