Of Stress and Suicides

According the Samaritans of Singapore, suicides rates in the city-state hit an all-time high of 467 in 2012 mainly due to stress and relationship issues.

And a report from Today recently mentioned how a local survey found out that six in ten employees report feeling mentally exhausted due to stress, depression and other factors.

Oh dear.

Why do people commit suicide? Why do people feel mentally exhausted at work? Why supports are they lacking? What supports are there, but not well-received? What are some larger systemic issues with society? With the mindsets of employers?
