Scary figures of suicide in Albania; no official cares for the international day of suicide prevention

  September 10 marks the International Day for the Prevention of Suicide, but although in Albania the figures of suicidal persons are too high, no activity was undertaken or even a simple appeal has been made.

Official statistics from INSTAT indicate that 659 people have committed suicide over the past 3 years, while for 2018 there is still no official data, although sources near the emergency point out that the number of people who have tried suicide is considerable.

Psychologists say that one of the main causes leading to suicide are mental disorders, depression, stress, alcohol and drug abuse.

Specialists also add that an increasing level of attempts to suicide is reported on teenagers, due to the impact the films have on them.

Meanwhile, although the number of suicides is high, the role of the psychologist in the Albanian society is still smal.
