World Health Organisation Report on Suicide: "One every 40 seconds".

"Suicide occurs all over the world and can take place at almost any age. Globally, suicide rates are highest in people aged 70 years and over. In some countries, however, the highest rates are found among the young. Notably, suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29 year-olds globally." - WHO (September 4, 2014).
