11 Professions With the Highest Suicide Rates in Australia

People say that the career path you choose can is closely linked with the depression rate. Is it true or are people just unsatisfied with the profession they have chosen so they are now making excuses for their own decisions? Insider Monkey recently published an article that can help us resolve this question by making the list of 11 professions with the highest suicide rates in Australia. Stay tuned while we try to discover whether there is some link or not.

Australia is said to be one of the best and most pleasant countries to live in. it offers the wide choice of opportunities for both their citizens and foreigners looking for the better life. Some of the best colleges are also placed in Australia and it was even ranked second by the United Nations for the quality of life it is providing to the people living there.

But even with so great conditions that it is offering, Australia is struggling with really high suicide rate, especially among teenagers. During the last couple of years, the biggest increase in suicide rate was among teenagers of the age of 15, which jumped higher by 92%. Besides that information, which is obviously extremely disturbing, we have also one more which is not that pleasant to the ear as well. Even 1.4% of all deaths in Australia are the result of the suicide. On the bright side for all Australians, this country is among the ones with lower suicide rate, but the similarity between Australia and other countries is that even in Australia is the higher percentage of suicidal men than women.

So what makes people give up on their life? As I already mentioned, the general quality of life has nothing to do with this. Does it make it true what other people say? Does it really have something to do with the profession? Just like all psychiatrists need their own psychiatrist because they go crazy? There are many jobs that put so much pressure on people, so that might actually have something to do with it.

For example, paramedics are first on the list of 11 professions with the highest suicide rates in Australia. Since there are so many lifes depending on their decisions, there is no wonder why there are so many people deciding to give up on their own life. I can’t even imagine that, having someone else’s life in my hands, deciding the next step if I knew that it could either bring him back to life or result in the immediate death.

So let’s see the full article about 11 professions with the highest suicide rates in Australia and try to understand it better.
