The incidence of suicide is increasing in the 10-14 year old age group and is the 5th ranking cause of death in people between the ages of 15 and 19 years. The reported incidence of suicide is probably much lower than the actual rate. “Suicide is of such a nature that fundamental understanding and prevention is possible within the sphere of activity of school health workers.”(TC)
