Suicide is an act wherein a person kills oneself intentionally. This tendency is associated with various mental and emotional issues such as depression, personality disorder, substance abuse, alcoholism, impulsiveness due to stress, financial distress, and troubled relationships, among others. In addition, changing lifestyle and increasing societal pressures aid in the high suicidal tendencies, primarily among young adults. Suicidal tendencies are indicated to be higher among women than in men. Demand for psychotherapy for the treatment of this condition is increasing which in turn is likely to contribute to the growth of the anti-suicide drugs market.
