Research shows that it's difficult to compare countries or even regions within a country when it comes to suicidal behaviour. However, it's critical to have a thorough understanding of risk factors and causes of depression and suicide to effectively deal with them.

With a focus on youth, the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) feels it's essential that learners can identify signs and symptoms of depression and suicide, be informed of the conditions and treatments and, know where to get local help from teachers, clinics, churches, support groups, and via their toll free help-lines and SMS's.
