Listen to teenagers

Sir -- I am a 17-year-old girl and I am speechless after hearing of a local young person committing suicide. This is about the fourth case of suicide I have heard of in the last few months.

The most shocking of all is that these people were all teenagers living in the town near me. If there can be so many suicides among young people in such a small area in such a short length of time, I cannot imagine how many suicides there have been around the country every day.

I'm so sick of suicide being a topic that people feel they cannot mention. You would not believe the amount of people I heard saying they wished they could have done something, but it's not just them who should have been wishing, it should have been the Government and society in general.
