Suicide rate turns into social crisis in Ilam; women commit most suicides

The head of the Ilam Welfare Organization warned that suicide had turned into a social crisis in Ilam adding that it was “very alarming”. “In light of the fact that we do not have exact figures on the numbers of suicides, investigations show that in certain months, four people died in one week due to suicide in the province”, Sadeq Rostami said.

He said that most of the suicides are carried out by women… “In some towns especially in Eivan, the suicide rate has exceeded the point of crisis and compared to other towns, it does not have a good condition”, he added saying that suicide age had gone below 30. The head of the Welfare Organization said that one of the reasons behind the high suicide rate in women was divorce and ensuing problems from divorce. (ISNA state-run News Agency – Jan. 1, 2011)
