  • It could be a good temporary solution leading to professional help

      Recent research has served as further evidence to prove that suicide cannot only be considered as a mental health problem. Factors such as socioeconomic deprivation and access to guns, also play an important role in high suicide rates.

      Although it’s difficult to determine the effectiveness on suicide prevention interventions, internet-based CBT has worked in reducing suicidal ideation in 2 recent studies.

      As a healthcare worker of 25+ years covid effected me mentally more so than I wanted to admit! I think if offering a service like this for efficacy callers need immediate contact! While I’ve never considered suicide as a solution it seems the majority of people who suffer from mental issues need to talk immediately! They need immediate contact!

      ICBT is accessible to everyone and easy to access, that’s why ICBT have more effect. Because in our society there is very little awareness about anxiety, depression and depression related disorders which leads to suicide.

      Suicide could be reduced using ICBT, but not as a solely solution to it, must of suicide attempt occurs not because of mental illness, but state of depression and anxiety due to different reasons
      But religion orientation has a very huge role to play in reducing the rate

      ICBT should be accessible to everyone as the causes of suicide are not peculiar to a certain group
