659 people committed suicide in the past three years in Albania. Meanwhile, this year, there are still no official figures, although hospitals say that the number of people who have attempted suicide is considerable. On their part, psychiatrists say that some of the main causes which lead to suicide are mental disorders, depression, stress, consumption of alcohol and different drugs.
Specialists also say that there’s a growing number of suicide attempts among teenagers due to the impact that movies have on them.
Suicide is a tragic event for the family, friends and community. They can experience a wide range of emotions, including pain, anger, guilt, mistrust, etc. Although support given by friends and relatives could be effective for those people who are in danger of committing suicide and those who have lost a relative, it’s not always enough. In the majority of cases, there needs to be more specialized help. This help can be obtained in different forms. In Albania, it can be offered in centers specialized in mental health, hospitals, private clinics or organizations working in this field.
