A new study recently showed those under thirty are more likely to contemplate suicide than any other age group. An analysis of 157,000 patient records also found that millennials (born 1980-94), are five times more likely to consider suicide than boomers (born 1944-64).
Study results showed that 2.3 per 1,000 patients under 30 years of age had a plan for taking their lives with the intention of carrying it out, compared to 0.4 per 1,000 patients over 60. The average ratio is 0.86 per 1,000 across all age groups.
In other study results, workers under 30 were much more likely to be afflicted with depression than older age groups; 4.8% of millennials (born 1980-94), suffered from the issue, compared to 1.7% of boomers (born 1944-64).
That means that in any workplace or organisation (around 1,000 employees), one or more staff at any given moment is probably seriously considering suicide, and the number is higher the more younger workers.
These findings should prompt everyone who is younger, to prioritise their mental and emotional well-being, taking steps to ensure you find support. Discussing any issue or concern is a wonderful way to alleviate many issues. Further, taking charge of yourself and using a hypnosis session to give you back your control is imperative for a long and happy life. Research has shown the more proactive we become, the better the result.
One challenge is recognising behaviours that signal you or someone you know is struggling. Anyone who seems overwhelmed or who are seriously — and possibly suddenly — underperforming in their job, seem withdrawn, overly sensitive or reactive are signals stress is elevated. This is time to speak with them and suggest some self-help. In another recent survey, it was revealed people are more stressed today than two years ago.
