suicide rate in various countries and cultures

Postby ph » Fri Apr 11, 2014 11:48 pm

Here are a select amount of countries that are by suicide rate

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/wo ... erate.html

While some countries have a understandably higher suicide rate then others, like Japan where they have high pressure and little room for mistake due to shame, others I wonder why such as like Lithuania, Scandanavia and others.

Its not to mention we all have personal struggles in life. However I think that option is something that is the last of the last option to think about.

What are some factors that explain why some countries have higher suicide rate then others?

Steve Hoca once said the main cause of suicide is guys swallowing the blue pill and trying to make it work. That's probably true.

Is it possible that guys who incorrectly swallow the red pill can also be prone to commit suicide?

Let's say that we can use the purple pill metaphora to state an incorrect and partial understanding of the problem(hating AW but staying at home for example)as a factor of a possible sucide cause.

In my opinion, one key mistake that Westerners make when discussing the subject is to chalk it up to mental illness universally, and to insist that everyone else follow suit. There are cultural and life-related factors that cause it in many cases, the Japanese "face" thing being one example. It's not always a case of "clinical depression" and "medical emergency"; I think that that approach is somewhat misguided.
