Suicide: Finding a Better Way Out
Suicide in Micronesia today has become a deadly epidemic, with one death leading to another. These days, nearly every Micronesian family has been touched by this problem. Just 40 years ago, however, this was not the case. The Micronesian suicide rate is now one of the highest in the world. Why are so many young people turning to this option?

Is there more tension in the family today than there used to be? Are young people hurt more by their families than their parents or grandparents were years ago? Or are there other issues involved? This video examines the problem of suicide in the hopes that it will lead people to discuss suicide more openly and find ways to deal with this issue.
