Suicide cases occured on teenagers suffering from school bullying, petty love issues and family problems, City Police Office (CPO) said Tuesday, October 24.

Incidence of suicide among the city’s teens and adolescents have increased this year compared to figures last year, according to the CPO.

A report from the CPO showed there had been 12 known suicide cases this year compared to eight last year.

Police Senior Inspector Pearl Marzo, CPO information officer said she believes that depression and stress have contributed to the increase in the number of suicide cases.

“Hindi nila kayang i-handle ‘yong kanilang problema kasi severe depression na,” Marzo said.

Marzo also said that these kind of cases are more pronounced among male teenagers who face personal problems and who don’t have a support system to help them cope.

“Sa obserbasyon ko lang, mas marami ang cases ng lalaki. Kasi nga hindi sila nakakapag-sabi ng kanilang problema,” Marzo said.

Some cases involve minors, or students who are constantly being bullied by schoolmates and friends. This also includes teenagers undergoing personal love issues with boyfriend or girlfriend and a handful of family problems.

“Meron kami noong mga iilang estudyanteng nagpakamatay dahil nga sa nabu-bully. ‘Yong iba dahil iniwanan ng girlfriend or boyfriend. Hindi rin puwede na ‘yan lang ang rason. Kadalasan niyan kaakibat palagi ay kung may problema din sila sa pamilya,” Marzo said.

Among the recent reported suicides in the city include the case of Geronimo Racasa, a member of the local LGBT community, who hanged himself inside their house on October 6 and Gilbert Losino, a provincial jail detainee, who also hanged himself in August allegedly due to depression.
