Research topic: a research into the correlation between depression and suicide among young people.

Theoretical framework

Suicide is one of the major global public health concern. Suicide and depression is also one of the widely discussed topic among researchers. Majority of suicide studies have always been linked to mental disorder. For example, a suicidal behavior research on Chinese University Students measured the connection between suicide and different mental disorders such as anxiety, stress, and depression including copying styles, hopelessness and the subjective well-being (Lew, B.,. et al, 2019). The result showed that these factors were major factors for suicide. Majority of people that have depressive disorder do not die or attempt to die by suicide but depression has always been linked with a higher risk of suicide (Daly, M. (2022). Some studies estimate that around 60% of individual that die by suicide have has bipolar disorder or depression.

The aim of this research is to find the relationship or connection between suicide and depression among young people, the percentage of those that are affected by depression and the percentage of young people with depressive disorder that have a suicidal thought. Even though there several research on depressive disorder among the youth less is covered on its connection to suicide among young people. As such, this research is important because mental health issues and following suicide deaths ad attempts has increasingly become a worldwide issues among young people. In addition, the research will help in increasing counselling effective and come up with preventive programs or strategies that can help prevent suicide and mental health problems among youth in the society.

Research questions

Hypothesis: Depression is wide-spread among young people and teenagers as well as it is one of the main causes of suicide and suicide behaviors.

For this research, there are few question, which I would need to know and include;

· What is the rate of youth and teenagers, with depressive disorder?

· What is the percentage of young people with depressive disorder, who have suicidal thought?

· Other than depression, what other factors contribute to suicidal thoughts?

· Among young people, can depression be regard as the main reasons for suicidal thoughts or behaviors?

The research study will follow a mixed research method (both qualitative and quantitative research method). It will also use questionnaires, interviews and involve psychologists and young people aged between 16-25 years old. In addition, it does not focus on specific race, ethnicity or nationality. Having it in a school setting will help incorporate diversity and cultural sensitivity. Moreover, mental disorders are also influenced by individual cultural backgrounds and social setting. To conclude, this proposed research study will help understand the connection depression has with suicide behavior among young people and provide an insight on how to understand and solve the problem.
