Mind Matters: Suicide Among Young People

Suicide is the leading cause of death among young people in Malaysia, at great social and economic cost to the country. What drives youths to attempt suicide, and what kind of support do we need to provide to prevent further deaths by suicide? We speak to consultant psychiatrist Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin and Dr Chua Sook Ning, clinical psychologist from RELATE.
