Abstract

SUICIDE is a major public health problem of the current period, particularly among young people, and is the second leading cause of death among the 15- to 24-year-old age group (Rudd 1989). Moreover, the suicide rate among the nation's youth has increased dramatically in the last two decades, an increase that amounts to having tripled in the years 1956 to 1975 (Holinger 1982).
