Abstract:

Suicide among young people is a serious public health problem in Malaysia. The objective of the seminar is to raise the awareness of the public, especially parents and educators, about the myth and facts of suicide of young people in Malaysia. The seminar will cover topics on how to differentiate suicidal behaviour and non-suicidal self-harm behaviour, how to detect signs of suicidal behaviour as well as the risk and protector factors.  It is hoped that greater awareness of suicides may help society to prevent suicide of our young people.
