12 Iloilo suicide cases since January – IPPO


first_imgLucas hoped there won’t be moresuicide cases in the province. He urged those with problems to seek spiritualadvice and strengthen their faith in God. Family problems or severe illnessmostly drove them to end their lives, according to Police Colonel Paul KennethLucas, police provincial director, citing the statements of these victims’families. “The prevention of suicide has notbeen adequately addressed due to a lack of awareness of suicide as a majorpublic health problem and the taboo in many societies to openly discuss it,”according to WHO. Suicide was the second leading causeof death among 15-29 year-olds globally in 2016, according to WHO. “Hindisila masyado nagsi-share ng problema. Kinikimkim lang nila until hindi nila makaya. Ang mga babae kasimore talkative,” he theorized. It also lamented the stigmaparticularly surrounding mental disorders and suicide. It means, it said, thatmany people thinking of taking their own lives or who have attempted suicideare not seeking help and are therefore not getting the help they need. He appealed for “purposeful action toprevent more suicides, especially among the youth” and urged the provincialgovernment to be “in the forefront of this effort.” ILOILO – The Iloilo PoliceProvincial Office (IPPO) has recorded 12 cases of suicide since January of thisyear. * follow-up care for people whoattempted suicide and provision of community support There are a number of measures thatcan be taken at population, sub-population and individual levels to preventsuicide and suicide attempts. WHO listed the following: On the other hand, the younger suicidevictims were driven to kill themselves by their love problems, Lucas said. But this statistics from the police isnot enough, said Palabrica. Ten of the suicide victims were male,IPPO records further showed. Suicide rates are also high amongstvulnerable groups who experience discrimination, such as refugees and migrants;indigenous peoples; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex (LGBTI)persons; and prisoners. In 2019 the IPPO recorded 78 suicidecases. Most of the victims were between 10 to 19 years old. In 2018, itrecorded 65 cases. That most of the victims were male“showed na mas mahina ang mga lalaki comparedsa mga babae in facing problems,”said Lucas. * reporting by media in a responsibleway Alarming. This was how SangguniangPanlalawigan (SP) member Matt Palabrica described the rising number of suicidecases in the province involving youngsters. “First there should be data…then, ano angcauses ngaaga-amo sini mga kabataan subong. Lantawon ang pangabuhi sining mga kabataan, related ayhan ini sakapigaduhon, sa impluwensya sang droga, sang influence sang peers, evensangsocial media,” said Palabrica, chairperson of the Provincial Board’s Committeeon Accounts and General Services and Human Resources. Detailed information about the suicides,most especially among the youth, is needed, he said, to get a clearer pictureso that appropriate interventions “targeted at the youth” could be introduced“like counseling, youth activities that include sports, co-curricular andextra-curricular activities.” WHO:IT’S A HEALTH PROBLEM The World Heal Organization (WHO)considers suicide “a serious public health problem” but preventable withtimely, evidence-based interventions. In addition, experiencing conflict,disaster, violence, abuse, or loss and a sense of isolation are stronglyassociated with suicidal behavior, according to WHO. Palabrica appealed for collectiveaction from the provincial government, school and health authorities, and thepolice, among others. * school-based interventions Of the 12 suicide victims, five agedbetween 30 to 39 years old. “We have to do this now and not later.The life saved through our intervention may be that of a loved one,” saidPalabrica. * reducing access to the means of suicide(e.g. pesticides, firearms, certain medications) Every year close to 800,000 peopletake their own lives and there are many more people who attempt suicide, itsaid. While the link between suicide andmental disorders (in particular, depression and alcohol use disorders) is wellestablished in high-income countries, WHO said many suicides happen impulsivelyin moments of crisis with a breakdown in the ability to deal with lifestresses, such as financial problems, relationship break-up or chronic pain andillness. * introducing alcohol policies toreduce the harmful use of alcohol “Suicide is a complex issue andtherefore suicide prevention efforts require coordination and collaborationamong multiple sectors of society, including the health sector and othersectors such as education, labor, agriculture, business, justice, law, defense,politics, and the media. These efforts must be comprehensive and integrated asno single approach alone can make an impact on an issue as complex as suicide,”according to WHO./PN The most common methods of suicideresorted to were hanging, chemical poisoning, shooting with a gun, and evenwilful drowning, he added. * early identification, treatment andcare of people with mental and substance use disorders, chronic pain and acuteemotional distress * training of non-specialized healthworkers in the assessment and management of suicidal behaviour By far the strongest risk factor forsuicide is a previous suicide attempt, according to WHO.

Injuries under the spotlight as Bundesliga continues


first_imgInjuries are likely to be under the spotlight this weekend as the Bundesliga stages its second round of matches since the COVID-19 stoppage, after last week’s restart produced a number of victims.Leaders Bayern Munich, chasing an eighth successive title, will host 13th-placed Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday evening. Borussia Dortmund, who are four points behind in second, visit sixth-placed VfL Wolfsburg in the afternoon.Last week’s restart was generally seen as having gone off successfully, albeit in a surreal atmosphere without spectators at any of the games.However, at least half a dozen players suffered injuries, highlighting concerns about plunging straight into competitive action after a two-month stoppage without warm-up matches.The most conspicuous was midfielder Giovanni Reyna, who was denied a first start for Borussia Dortmund by an injury during the warm-up when they faced Schalke 04 in the Ruhr derby.The 17-year-old US player was replaced by Thorgan Hazard who himself went off with an injury during the 4-0 win, while Schalke 04 pair Jean-Clair Todibo and Amine Harit also suffered injuries. Other casualties included Sebastian Rudy and Ihlas Bebou of Hoffenheim, Borussia Moechengladbach’s Marcus Thuram and Per Ciljan Skjelbred of Hertha Berlin.Although teams can now make five substitutions per match instead of the usual three, the upcoming flurry of fixtures leaves players even more vulnerable.The additional substitutions was a temporary measure brought in especially to deal with the unusual circumstances.A midweek round of matches next week means that teams will be playing three times in a 10-day period.“The players will be flat after 60 minutes,” warned Marc Lorenz, a midfielder with second tier Karlsruher, earlier this month. “Even the five substitutions that have been made won’t help. That’s when the fatigue will come and then the serious injuries.”“There are many who play for a new contract,” he added. “If one of them tears a cruciate ligament, no one will sign him. Health is priceless.”The next 10 days will show whether or not his fears are unfounded.Reuters/NAN.RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance Club’s server collapses over ticket demand for first Bundesliga game in 11 years FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Tags: Bayern MunichBundesligaCOVID-19injuriesVfL Wolfsburglast_img read more
