Increasing cases of suicide is a worrying phenomenon in Ghana. Many of such cases have been linked to depression.

Globally, it is estimated that about 800,000 people die from suicide every year(BMC Health report, 2020).

Although suicide remains a crime in Ghana, much is not being done to curb the increasing cases in the country. To mitigate this phenomenon, the relevant authorities must invest more in public education and increase acess to mental health.
