Economic Costs of Suicide

In the paper, Economic Cost of Youth Suicide Malaysia, Relate Malaysia found that, for every youth suicide in 2019, the Malaysian economy lost RM676,165. Dr Chua Sook Ning – clinical psychologist and founder of Relate Malaysia – said the shocking figures should serve as a wake-up call to the Malaysian Government to invest more in youth mental health, including effective suicide prevention strategies. On this episode of Live & Learn, we dissect this study with Dr Chua Sook Ning, and discuss what the country should do moving forward.
