YOUNG people make up the majority of suicide victims.

This was highlighted by Lifeline Fiji’s officer in charge, Jeremaia Qalobula, who said a majority of the individuals who were completing suicide were young people.

“These are from the age range of 15 to 28 and our youngest victim is seven-years-old,” Mr Qalobula said.

He urged those going through depression or in need of someone to talk to, to call Lifeline Fiji’s toll free number on 132454.
