A study conducted by Taylor & Francis, an international journal published in the US, revealed that between 15 and 35 people in Pakistan end their lives every day, with as many as one person taking their own life every hour. The study, dedicated to the field of suicide research and prevention, highlighted the prevalence of personal experiences related to suicide and self-harm, as well as encounters in social circles in Pakistan. The results also indicated that mental illness was recognized as a major contributor to suicide, and that many individuals viewed suicide as a means to escape pain. Barriers to seeking help were identified, including social deterrents, inaccessibility, and unaffordability. Additionally, the study found that women, youth, and rural Pakistanis were at a higher risk for suicide, while the moral implications of suicide were not widely considered.
