ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the increasing rate of suicide cases in New Zealand. Statistics showed that youth suicide rates have doubled since 1985, with the country having the highest rate for the 15-24 year old age group in 1995. It cites the increasing rates of substance abuse, breakdown of the family and over-protectiveness as some of the reasons for suicide. Studies revealed that the media coverage of suicide may result to copycat suicides and suicide clusters.
