During the last decade, the suicide rate, though relatively stable, has been about double the rate throughout most of the period from1921 to 1961 and well above previous highs recorded during the Depression of the 1930s. Take Quebec as an example, it is one of the provinces in Canada, which has a 7.2 million mostly population, occupies a territory that is three times the size of California. (Lambert, Chagnon, Renaud & Rivard, 2004)While it has the highest death rate of suicide-20.7 per 100,000 populations in the 15-19 age teenage group compare to the average number in America which is 12.0 per 100,000 populations in 15-24 age group (Peters & Murphy, 1998), and the average death number of suicide in whole Canada which is 11.5 per 100,000 populations in 1996 (Statistics Canada, 1998).

Abstract “In the U.S. alone, more than half a million reports of abuse against elderly Americans reach authorities every year, and millions more cases go unreported.” (www.helpguide.org/mental/elder_abuse_physical_emotional_sexual_neglect.htm) Our senior citizens eventually become feeble physically which means they are less likely to have the capability to fight off an attacker. Majority of elderly do not see, hear or think as soundly as they once had the competence to do, this leaves them vulnerable for immoral people to take full advantage of them. Elderly are being abused more than we know and often by those who are personably accountable for their care. Sadly, majority of the abuse comes directly from family members of the elderly patient. In 2010 according to research about ninety percent were family members of the person in need of care.

An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year, 85% of domestic violence victims are women.

MPs, bereaved parents, health professionals and junkies themselves say radical measure are needed to stamp out the city’s problem – the worst in Europe. Drugs deaths have risen sharply in recent years. In 1992, 43 young Glaswegians died; last year, the figure was 97 out of total of around 140 north of the border. In a city of 650,000 people the rate is worryingly high. Compared to the rest of Britain, it is shocking.
The alarming statistics that relate to youth violence are alarming and over whelming. Upon review of a study about youth violence, The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that in 2007, 5764 young people aged 10-24 were murdered, that’s an average of 16 each day (CDC2010). With that said murder is the second leading cause of death for that age group. Other less severe crimes, but still inexcusable are also on the rise. Assaults committed by young people ages 10-24 were responsible for more than 656,000 injuries treated in an emergency room (CDC2010).
Once the Taliban took over Afghanistan, the death toll had significantly risen. For Afghan women, their greatest obstacle is child birth. On average, one Afghan woman dies every thirty minutes due to pregnancy related causes. (Walsh, 2007) The national maternal mortality rate in Afghanistan is 1600 for every 100,000 births, which is second in the world next to Sierra Leone. (Walsh, 2007) Healthcare for expectant mothers was a major issue.
To understand the link between health and illness, the physiological,psychological and social aspects of an individual's life must be taken into account. This project will be based on specific issued relating to nursing practice which I identified during placement. While (2002) states that effective communication is fundamental to effective consultation and appropriate environment which support privacy and confidentiality. Bate (1999) observing patients, allowed me to notice the distressing situation that the patients was which make them feel uncomfortable which have effects on their social, physical and psychological among older adult with mental health illness.
