Just a few weeks ago we were shocked by the news of a high school student
from the SUGS “Rade Jovchevski-Korcagin” who committed a suicide by
jumping from a garage in Skopje. He was only 17, and on the ninth floor from
where he had decided to jump, left his certificate with the grades for the second
year of his education and a farewell letter.
The statistic shows that several thousand people annually commit a suicide,
and every third of them is a child. That is why the suicide is called “silent
epidemic” and it is a serious public health problem globally.
The paper points out the data that the suicidal behavior is a current and growing
problem among the adolescents in Republic of North Macedonia and as such
it must be studied in order to be developed an adequate form of prevention,
which asks for a multidisciplinary approach.
