World Suicide Prevention Day 2010 theme: “Many faces, many places: Suicide prevention across the world”
It would seem that the concept of suicide isn’t taken seriously by most people. In fact, it’s become the butt of several jokes. I think this is attributed to the sensationalized way the media presents suicide. It’s been portrayed ridiculously in soap operas, become mere inserts in television newscasts, and been demoted as tabloid articles. The process of suicide ideation is not taken as seriously as it should!
