More Swedes Attempt Suicide

The number of suicide attempts among young people in Sweden is increasing. The rise among young women has been particularly sharp, although the figure for young men is also up. The figures come in a report published on Monday by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare, which shows that the greatest rise in attempted suicides in 2006 was among women in the 15-24 age group.

A total of 140,000 people were admitted to hospital in 2006 for 'deliberate self-destructive action', the official term used in medical registers for suicide attempts. Overdoses of tablets were most common.

All this confirms what should have been increasingly clear for decades. Sweden is a FAILED STATE!Even its own citizens cannot bear existing in such a basket case nation. It has NO HOPE, NO FUTURE and hasn't had any successes since ABBA.
