This has come to the fore from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data presented recently in Parliament.

According to the NCRB, at least 24,568 children in the age group of 14-18 committed suicide between 2017-19. These include 13,325 girls. If seen year-wise, at least 8,029 children in the age group 14-18 committed suicide in 2017, which rose to 8,162 in 2018 and the number rose to 8,377 in 2019.

The highest number of suicide cases in this age group were reported from Madhya Pradesh where 3,115 children committed suicide, followed by West Bengal at 2,802, Maharashtra with 2,527 and Tamil Nadu with 2,035. The data said that of 4,046 children who failed exams, 639 children committed suicide over marriage-related issues, including 411 girls. Apart from this, 3,315 children committed suicide due to love affairs and 2,567 children due to illness, 81 children committed suicide due to physical abuse.

The reasons behind suicide were also given due to death of a loved one, drug addiction, pregnancy, loss of social status, unemployment, poverty etc. Expressing concern over the worsening situation due to the corona virus infection, Pooja Marwah, chief executive officer of ‘Cry – Child Rights and You’, an organization working for children, has expressed concern about including life skills training in school curricula and health care and wellness agenda. Emphasis on the inclusion of mental health in

“Young children often try to commit suicide by getting impulsive. These expressions can be associated with sadness, confusion, anger, trouble, difficulties etc. Cases of suicide in adolescents can be related to stress, lack of self-confidence, pressure to succeed, etc. and some adolescents consider suicide as a solution to problems.

We believe that every child and adolescent deserves quality mental health care and a psycho-social support system. Ensuring their good mental health will help in bringing out their personality completely and they will become responsible members of the society.
