Social integration keeps the mental state in order and decreases the chances of committing the suicide.
Let’s understand what is suicide? Suicide is defined as death caused by self-directed injurious behavior with intent to die.
According to Emile Durkheim ‘The more socially integrated and connected a person is, the less likely he or she is to commit suicide.’ His theory is based on the fact that social integration keeps the mental state in order and decreases the chances of committing the suicide.
Emile also demonstrated in his research that suicide has always been constant throughout all these years. While society and its members are constantly changing so are their reasons as to why suicide is the only option to partake in.
Suicide has been rapidly increasing among youth. According to certain reports, more than 700000 people die due to suicide every year around the world and suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-19 years old. Approximately, 77% of global suicides occur in low and middle income countries.
Cause of suicide
Depression has played a huge role in suicide. Depression is a common and serious medical illness that even causes the death. Because the people suffer from depression and stress, suicide rate has jumped.
In view of increasing incidents of suicide, it is important to recognize underlying factors which affect the mental state of people and are associated with suicide rates. This is important to the construction of further research and for the opportunity to be able to properly treat and care for those who are being affected by these extraneous factors before suicidal ideation turns into suicide. Many people die every day because of suicide, therefore it is time to take a stand and investigate why these individuals think this is the only way to cope with stress, pain and monetary problems.
