Iloilo City Councilor Candice Tupas recently voiced concern over the number of suicide cases in the city, expressing her desire to form a support group to handle the matter.
According to the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO), 22 suicide cases and five attempted suicides were recorded in the city since 2015.
“I encourage parents and guardians, if they notice that their children are ‘bearing away’ or their behavior has changed, report it immediately,” she implored.
She added, suicide is the second leading cause of death among young adults aged between 15 and 24./WDJ
