Suicide Rate

Suicide Rate

All cases of suicide, including unsuccessful attempts are recorded in the national suicide registration system, said Ahmad Hajebi, chairman of Mental Health Office at the Health Ministry. “At present, 30% of all suicide attempts occur in villages and 70% in urban areas, with 2.9% resulting in death,” IRNA quoted him as saying. Till the year 2012, the suicide rate was 20% in villages and 80% in cities, which means there are more suicides now in rural areas. According to the Iranian Social Workers Association, in the last 15 years the suicide rate has been 5-7 per 100,000 people in the country, a figure much lower than the global average of 16 per 100,000.
