"Somewhere in Singapore today, someone will commit suicide. Seven others will try, but help will come in time and they will survive.

"The same will happen again tomorrow, and every day.

"These are among the facts of life and death here, and this is how it has been for a long time.

"Looked at one way, Singapore's statistics for suicide say that much has stayed fairly stable over the years and there is nothing to be alarmed about.

"Viewed another way, however, you must wonder why the numbers have not come down despite a proliferation of support services and crisis helplines over the years."

Excerpt of article "Death is not the only way out" by ALAN JOHN in THE STRAITS TIMES of 5 Jul 2006 (Page 22)
