Abstract: Nearly a million people take their own lives every year, more than those murdered or killed in war. Suicide is a problem that affects people of all ages and economic levels, and is recognised by the WHO as a significant public health problem. A large significant proportion of suicides are among young women. This document emerging out of the experience of a hospital based project on domestic violence to help understand the distress and helplessness that a person attempting suicide feels. It is meant to help those having to deal with such situations, among women and has useful pointers for all such cases.
