How Guyana is trying to combat its high suicide rate – By Gemma Handy – BBC News

How Guyana is trying to combat its high suicide rate

  • The Guyana Foundation plans to establish more centres like the one in Zorg-En-Vlygt

    The Sunrise Center aims to help drive down Guyana’s high suicide rates

Chattering amiably, heads bent over plugs and wires, enthusiasm among students in the electrical installation class is palpable.

The bright welcoming venue, framed by rice paddies, looks the picture of pastoral contentment. But behind its creation lies an unsettling reality.

This upbeat community centre was built to address the devastating number of suicides both here on the scenic Essequibo Coast – and in Guyana itself, which holds the dubious distinction of the highest suicide rate in the world.     Continue reading
