(9/20/2010)

Beritabali.com conveys the saddening news that thus far in 2010 a total of 146 Balinese have taken their own lives, earning the island province the unenviable distinction of being the Indonesian province with the third largest number of suicides nation-wide.

These macabre statistics were presented by noted Indonesian psychiatrist Professor Luh Ketut Suryani at a seminar commemorating national suicide prevention day held in Tabanan on Tuesday, September 14, 2010.

Professor Suryani said the main motivation for suicide in Bali was a desire to escape personal problems – such a social problems, economic difficulties or communication difficulties with families and friends.

The regencies of Karangasem and Buleleng are the two areas of Bali reporting the highest number of suicides in Bali, according to Suryani.

In order to stem the growing number of suicides in Bali Suryani urged everyone to struggle against the dark urges that exists within every individual; to always maintain a positive outlook on life; and for an anti-suicide program established between the public, police, relevant government agencies, artists, the mass media, community organizations and experts.

A noted author and mental health practitioner, Professor Suryani predicts that in 2010 the number of Bali residents who will suffer a mental disorder will reach 9,000, of which 350 will be placed in primitive chains or restraints by the families and local communities.
