    Suicide is contagious. When there’s media report of succesful suicide, others are tempted to try it. Those who have friends and family who have talked about depression or shown signs of depression, monitor them closely and help as much as you can biko.

    When are we going to accept that the hardship in NIgeria has resulted in increased depression, and therefore risk of suicide? Same thing you are seeing in the US where people are dosing up on opioids because they are really depressed. BTW, this is not ordinary depression. This is depression that comes from people feeling they are not mobile economically, and that they are actually experiencing retrogression from where they have been able to get to.

    i.e., a loss of everything they have worked so hard to attain. This is the most devastating type of depression. Just when you think you are not going back to where you came from, an ill wind blows for a minute and you are at a much lower place than where you started from.
