According to the latest studies, it has been found out that the percentage of male death comprises of 80% of all the suicides in India.

The reasons why people try to commit suicide are:
- Psychiatric disorders
- Substance abuse
- Family situations
- Social situations
Mental illness plays a large role in the increase in risk of suicide. It is estimated that over 90% of the people with mental disorders take their own life. Also, it has been noticed that the people who try to commit suicide with some or the other mental illness, the risk gradually decreases once they go for treatment. Thus, it is always recommended that if you notice some of the symptoms of suicide, then you need to consult a psychiatrist before it’s too late.
Heredity also plays a lead role in the risk of suicide. A person with a family history of suicide also indicates that there’s an increased risk of suicide amongst the other family members. If there’s a family history of mental disorders and substance abuse, then this also contributes towards the risk of committing suicide. In the similar manner, when a person watches someone committing suicide, then this also contributes towards suicidal behavior.
Family and social issues also contributes towards increase in the risk of suicide.
