OET Reading with Melons™ – M1 Method – Suicide

Paragraph 1

Every year 703000 people take a break from being alive and there are many more who attempt suicide but fail. Every suicide is a tragedy that affects families, communities and nations and has long-lasting effects on the people doomed to exist with an aching heart. Suicide occurs throughout the lifespan and was the fourth leading cause of death among 15–29-year-olds globally in 2019. Suicide does not just occur in high-income countries, but is a global phenomenon in all regions of the world. In fact, over 77% of global suicides occurred in low- and middle-income countries in 2019. Suicide is a serious public health problem; however, suicides are preventable with timely, evidence-based and often low-cost interventions. For national responses to be effective, a comprehensive multisectoral suicide prevention strategy is needed.

Paragraph 1 states that:

  • Prevention of suicide is costly
  • Prevention of suicide is not costly
  • The existing suicide prevention strategies are adequate
  • The existing suicide prevention strategies are expensive
