Why is the rate of suicides so high?
12:40pm Thursday 13th February 2014 in Letters
IS anyone going to acknowledge and question the number of suicides that have happened over the past few years in and around Andover?
I would hate to come across as uncaring or cold, but how many of these situations occur due to these individuals being influenced by the previous suicide?
After these people take their own life they are spoken about and speculated about for weeks after.
I myself have struggled with mental illness. It took me a long while to get over it but I did. It takes time and effort, but it is possible.
I’m concerned that suicide is becoming a trend in our town specifically.
Why are they doing this?
