Three attempted suicides have been reported over the past few days, according to media reports
A Micoud man, believed to be in his thirties, is reported to have been taken to hospital Wednesday afternoon after drinking a poisonous liquid.
Reports indicate that the man admitted to ingesting the liquid. He apparently suffers from depression.
In a separate incident, a young woman who lives in the South of the Island is reported to have consumed an overdose of an undisclosed medication.
The woman, who also reportedly suffers from depression, was hospitalized after complaining of a severe headache.
She was subsequently taken to the Mental Wellness Centre for counselling, reports indicate.
Meanwhile a male secondary school student from the South of the Island is also reported to have attempted to commit suicide a few days ago.
It is being alleged that the suicide attempt was as a result of a romantic relationship that turned sour.
