Reddy Will Reveal Data On Causes Of Suicide

Minister for Education, Mahendra Reddy will be revealing a data on the possible causes of suicide today.

It will be part of suicide prevention awareness held at Fijian schools.

“This will reveal where the problem lies, whether it lies with schools, policy makers or with parents,” Mr Reddy said.

“We have been talking about this issue for a long time, but the people who are affected need to speak up and every child in Fiji will participate.”

Today, schools all over the country will not hold classes, instead they will spend the day talking about suicide. Mr Reddy will also do a pledge – to live life in full.

“Students will do role plays as a child, parent, friend, counsellor, religious leader or teacher. This is the beginning of a bigger strategy.”
