Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Suicide is not a recent phenomenon among adolescents. Young people have taken their own lives for as long as history has been recorded. It is not coincidence, or by accident, that literature, too, is full of reports of adolescent suicides (Konopka, 198J). Ophelia drowns herself after she is rejected by Hamlet. Romeo kills himself when he believes his beloved to be dead, who in turn kills herself when realizing Romeo had committed suicide.
