Suicide among young women up

Postby HBS Guy » 10 Oct 2018, 10:32

Buried among the data in the latest ABS report is an even more frightening figure: the number of suicides of women of aged under 25 has increased by 76 per cent over the past 10 years.

Used to be it was young men committing suicide, now it is both sexes? What is going on?

Some years back The WHO predicted that depression would be the leading health concern in the world.

Time to get proactive about treatments that actually work.

What did it for me was massage. Prior to that I about lived at the Adelaide Casino—gambling is one refuge of the depressed.

So glad that you found something to work for you and yes, physical touch is a known healer.

What i've got my eye on over recent times with a keen anticipation of the future is the use of psychotropics in the treatment of mental health illness.

MDMA, for instance, in clinical trial has been found in significantly high percentages of the control studies to provide up to 3 month cessation of symptoms from PTSD from a single dose.

No other drugs work on PTSD. You may get lucky and find something for the depression ... you can manage the anxiety to a degree ... but there's a whole lot more going on than that.

One dose. Three months.

i wonder how much, if any, has to do with trolls on social media and modern societies inability to escape from it?

You once had a refuge when you got home, or rather I should say that most people had a refuge when they got home. But these days with smart phones etc it not only follows you home, but your stuck with it on the train, bus, at your mates place, at school, at work ..... everywhere, even on the crapper. There is almost no escape from it unless you want to make yourself a recluse, and for most youngsters (damn, i sound like an old man) that's not really an option.

As you are a taciturn man with considerable inclination towards being morally and ethically outrageous, i could run a few paths on what you are actually floating here.

I'm choosing to be optimistic and going with you speculating that young women are feeling pressures previously reserved for young men, resultant from career equality.

I contest that. For a great many reasons.

Pertinent to this issue though is method. Women and girls have always attempted suicide in comparable rates to men and boys, it's just that the men and boys tend to employ more violent, irredeemable methods, like gun shot, hanging, etc.

Women and girls tend to overdoses and self-harm. In other words, open to intervention.

What this study suggests to me is that young women are opting for more 'final' methods.

I think Hatty was referencing your rude and nonconstructive reply to my considered post.

Hatty doesn't know you like i know you. I understand that that is about as close as you can manage towards explaining yourself. You just know what you know, right Sprint?

I could swear i asked sprint to show me where the swearing was. I can't see any swearing.

this means that no pissing hell swearing occurred.

No wish to derail this thread any further....

with cost of houses
deterioration of stable employment
student debt
online bullying
generations of destroying the rock on which we live
needles in strawberrys

........ needles in fucking strawberrys....... STRAWBERRYS!

We need to look at what is driving young girls and boys to this end..... and try to do something about it...... pronto.

To some extent whoever it was said “equality” is right. Work stress, work-life balance stress, money problems etc, not forgetting that in couples even if the female works fulltime she still does most of the housework. Is it really a wonder that females are stressed, some to the point of suicide?

I am not making cheap points about everybody wanting all the latest stuff. People who have a mobile phone can be contacted by their boss all the time, ditto for laptop. Used to be, you signed off work and that was work done for the day. Phone and laptop are required by work these days.

I think the zooming price of houses over so long a time period has just ratcheted up the stress of modern life.
