Island of Death - Rising Suicide Rate in Singapore

Suicide rate in Singapore is increasing hitting a record high of 467 in 2012. Is it the stress and pressure from family and society that push more Singaporeans to their death? There's an increase of 29% from 2011 and 80% are from the 20-29 age group.

This clearly shows the stressful life in Singapore, a country where they say NO to almost everything even chewing gum. 

Common problems faced are mostly stressful life events and interpersonal relationship issues. These includes unemployment, stress from studies and work, financial problems, family issues and many more.  Lots of young people who face problems does not know who to approach for help and more often fades away from the crowd. 

Singapore is a highly competitive country from studies to working environment. This is no wonder their citizens are high-strung and may explode just about anytime.
