Suicide, an act of intentionally killing one’s own self, has been a grave problem among adolescents and adults. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that between 22% – 38% of adolescents have thought about suicide at some point in their lives, which results in the tragic loss of close to 800,000 people every year. This, in calculation, gives petrifying results of about one person dying every 40 seconds, on average. It’s a global phenomenon and will continue to impact many lives. In recent days, it has become the leading cause of death among age-groups of 15-20 years, and even of 20-45 years in some countries.
These people who are depressed, and who eventually choose suicide as a melancholic alternative, could be brought back on-track by adjusting their mentality toward the problem, and persuading them to confront the issue, for it would overcome the burden from their shoulders, once they realize the meaning behind this “Life”. This could make a huge difference in their life, if they start discovering positive experiences to overcome problems they suffer from. All such profound differences, and positive achievements, might be the outcome of a simple tap on a cell-phone or on a PC, which takes the suicide-prone subject to an online consultation site, where thousands of suicide-prevention consultants will be helping gloomy people cope with their pessimistic thoughts. Individuals who are struggling with their life, who are strangled by the burden resting upon their shoulders, who are the victims of public derision, and who are embarrassed to lift their heads up high, who dread people pouring scorn on their ideas, and people which start shaping their dreams into the gates of nightmares – leading such individuals to an alien world of failure and disbelief in life – can be handed a candle of hope with this online consultation, that’s bound to make a transformative difference in their life. In a nutshell, this initiative will function to raise the oppression of silence, and to light the candle of joy on the planet of dismay.
To roll-out this initiative, a team of expert consultants will need to be engaged. At the outset, a group of web-developers will be working to envision this consulting platform. The organization will have in its workplace many departments, ranging from server and ICT department, to facilities for counseling the suicide-prone subject face-to-face by adepts. Centers for DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) will be established throughout the country. The major focus will be given to online counseling, where the subject will be communicating directly with the experts. On top of that, national preventative strategies will be initiated at first, together with pressuring the media to cease romanticizing negative emotions – which can lead to vicarious traumatization. In this era, where lots of suicide-prevention and mental health clinics are accessible, but none of them have been able to effectively solve this suicide phenomenon, due to factors such as, on the inside, clinic-personnel are consumed by paperwork, funding stress, liability concerns, and impossible caseloads, which result in them not living-up to their ideals. The job has become about avoiding litigation, and high-risk patients, rather than about experimenting with new ways of effectively treating the people who need it most. In this prospective scenario, this model will not just be dryly claiming outcomes, but will strive to achieve tangible results, before we even see it thriving. Depending on the progress this project makes, this model will be expanded in collaboration with local campaigns throughout the world.
