Females More Likely to Commit Suicide in UK
UK data alarmingly shows that females are more likely to take their own lives. Traditionally, males have been at an increased risk and more likely to commit suicide, but since 2015, the statistics have reversed. The UK recently passed the Mental Health Act, which is believed to have reduced the number of suicides overall and specifically caused a decrease in male acts. However, upon closer inspection, the bill does little to help girls and woman with serious psychological issues, as many of those in this position have suffered abuse.
