Anatomy Of Suicide

Front Cover
Gyan Publishing House, 2005 - Suicide - 302 pages
Suicide is the action of killing oneself intentionally. It is a multidimensional disorder, which results from a complex interaction of biological, genetic, psychological, sociological and environmental factors. For the last few decades it has become a serious health problem in our modern societies. Throughout the world, about 2000 people kill themselves each day. Suicide is among the top 10 causes of death in the 15 to 35 year age group. This book provides a comprehensive account of the state of current knowledge concerning incidence of suicide and attempted suicide. It describes the biological, genetics, psychological, and socio-logical factors related to suicidal behaviour. It also discusses assess-ment, treatment, and prevention. It will serve as a highly useful reference too for anyone, including physicians, nurses, social workers, counsellors, teachers, clergy and parents interested in learning more about suicide.

I found this book when searching this quote of mine:
"Putting Megan on medication does not make Mom a better mother."
I was surprised to find a lot of my writing copied here.
I could not tell if the author has given me credit, so if anyone, including the author Mr. Pandey, knows if due credit has been given to me for much of the material between pages 176-180, please let me know.
The material was copied from this page of my website
