On the 24th of September 2020, Hult Prize, a global competition which aims at grooming and training entrepreneurs, specifically in the college or university setting, came out with an in-depth writeup to talk about the severity of suicide in our country, and how it has had an effect on the health of people all over the world in general.
Compiled by Mr Reginald Arthur Jnr from the Department of Nursing and Midwifery of Pentecost University, Dr Mrs Abigail Agartha Kyei also from the Department of Nursing and Midwifery of Pentecost University and Chris Appiah-Badu, the Campus Director of Hult Prize for Pentecost University, some key points distinctly mentioned in the piece are the causes of suicide, which could be poverty, alcohol disorder, loneliness and among others.
Methods of prevention are also highlighted, a few being school-based interventions, faith-based interventions, reporting to the media responsibly and many more.
Another thing made know to us the overall intensity of suicide, and how it is not a respecter of people in any way, shape or form, and advises that all students, from Pentecost University and many others, pay close attention to this issue and act accordingly.
These are one of the many aspects of wellbeing Pentecost University as a school holds dearly.
