Health News Digest: Criminalising Suicide?

We bring the latest in health news. Deputy Women, Community and Family Development Minister Hannah Yeoh said suicide should be decriminalised. We look at whether the law to punish people for attempting suicide is archaic.

*If you are struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts or if you simply need to talk to someone, call The Befrienders KL at 03-7956 8144/8145 or e-mail sam@befrienders.org.my. It’s free and confidential.
