The need to be trained to identify signs and symptoms of stress is vital considering the number of lives that have been lost and can be lost due to the illness.
This is the comment by Vodafone ATH Foundation Regional Projects Manager Nilesh Chand while presenting a $20, 000 cheque to support Lifeline Fiji in handling stress cases.
Chand is urging Corporate Sectors as well as communities to work together in addressing the issue.
“We sometimes wait for the situation to deteriorate and to a level that is hard to reverse and totally a loss goes. We would like more corporate sectors families and communities to come together and address the issue that impacts the success of Fiji and is also blocking our development.”
According to research conducted, it reveals that suicide is two times more than the road death toll and in every 26 to 30 hours someone attempts to commit suicide.
