Suicide among young people appears to be a severe issue that requires immediate attention and concerted global initiatives. Suicide is now a leading cause of death in all parts of the world. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) estimate, low and middle-income countries account for approximately 77% of all suicides worldwide. Pakistan, which is also a developing country, has seen an upsurge in the number of suicides among its youth, but official suicide numbers in the country are still unclear. Pakistan neither submits suicide fatality numbers to the WHO nor compiles national suicidal statistics. Certain social and religious factors make reporting and collection of data on suicide difficult in Pakistan, however, research of several studies reveals that household problems are the leading cause of suicide in Asian countries. The research paper is divided into two sections: (1) variables that contribute to the rise of child and teenage suicide, and (2) evidence-based therapy of child and adolescent suicide. Academic success, physical condition, mental health and well-being, economic status, financial difficulties, and overall life enjoyment are all crucial matters to consider. According to a survey, the leading cause of mortality among persons in 2019 was suicide. As a global goal, WHO has prioritized the lowering of suicide moral. This paper indicates that the only way forward is to eliminate all risk factors through integrated and multi-sector prevention programs, with essential prevention methods that can be population-based as well as targeted to high-risk sub-groups.
