It is extremely important to demote this rate in the country. While there has been significant progress in downgrading the rate, some argue that the matter is still not taken seriously and enough isn’t being done to exterminate suicide in Guyana.
The decline in the suicide rate during the period of 2012 to 2015 was brought about as a result of an increase in awareness of the elevated suicide rate in Guyana. This awareness inspired Guyanese citizens and urged the Government to make an effort to thwart the suicide reputation in the country. One significant effort made by the Government was the placement of a two year custodial sentence on attempted suicide. This enforcement was made to highlight the strict intolerance for suicide in the country
