Youth suicide on the increase
The suicide rate amongst young people in Japan is increasing. This follows a national trend across all age-ranges, except the elderly.
32,249 people committed suicide in 2008. The number of teenage and 20s suicides rose to over 4,000, an increase of nearly 12%.
There has been a call from the National Defense Medical College for schools to increase educational input about suicide.
