i read that the highest rate of suicide is teenagers between 17 and 25. And i read that if men think about it will surely do it, and women is not suer. Blackfire Take care...talk to you tomorrow.
AFAIK, statistics say that women are more likely to attempt a suicide, but men are more likely to really kill themselves because they choose more violent methods.

And I read that something like "Christmas suicides" is actually a myth, and that most of suicides are commited in spring and summer...

Just thinking, the weather phenomenom known as SAD where people don't get enough direct sunlight which can make us depressed. Maybe that is a trigger for lots of suicidals over the winter months.

The weather is the common problem with depression when you live up north and the winer days are short. There is more darkness and less to do with people.
