Almost 800,000 deaths by suicide occurred in 2015, according to World Health Statistics, a publication from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Axar.az reports citing Euronews.

The report, which compiles data from the organisation’s 194 member states, shows the highest suicide rate in the UN health agency’s European region (14.1 per 100,000 people), and the lowest rate in its Eastern Mediterranean region (3.8 per 100,000).

World Health Statistics, which has been released during Mental Health Awareness Month, provides a snapshot of both gains and threats to the health of the world’s people.

Improved collection of statistics meant that 27 million of the world’s 56 million estimated deaths in 2015 were registered with a cause compared with only about a third in 2005.
