The International Suicide Statistics adds that 1.8% of all deaths recorded globally are as a result of suicide with its rate rocketing at 60% in the past forty-five years. The root cause of depression that led to the high peak of suicide and other forms of mortality cases has been identified by many studies as the lack of strong social support structures resulting in exacerbated loneliness.
