According to the National Health and Morbidity Survey done in 2006, 6% of Malaysians have suicidal thoughts at some point in their lives. I think if we were to take the wordings seriously, "at some point in their lives", then 6% is not really that worrying. Just from my personal experience, I would feel that most of us "at some point in our lives" would have such thought passing by. So is it really alarming, or is it plain ignorance of the realities of life?
Very honest, did you ever have such forbidding thoughts "at some point in your life"? No? Not even once; a passing thought? You are such a lucky person. Congratulations! Life must have been very kind to you. On the other hand if you did have, it would just have been a passing thought, with no further consequences. Isn't it?
I wonder how much it costed the Ministry of Health to conduct the survey? Hmmmm!
