Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendly

<p>Hong Kong&#39;s suicide&#39;s rate is the third highest in Asia, behind only Japan and South Korea. The rate is way above the world average with an alarmingly high number of young people taking their own lives. Why are so many Hong Kong people killing themselves? What&#39;s being done to bring the numbers down, and is the media partly to blame for the high numbers? Discuss these issues with Dr. Paul Yip (Jockey Club&#39;s Suicide Research and Prevention Centre), Liz Chamberlain (Director of The Samaritans, 24-hour multi-lingual hotline) and Chris Yeung (South China Morning Post)</p>
