Religion Minster tells the reasons of children's suicides in Kazakhstan
According to the World Health Organization, Kazakhstan takes the 2nd place in the world on a suicide among youth after India. At the same time, according to experts, 90% of all cases of a children's suicide are a call for help, BNews.kz correspondent reported.
Results of opinion polls among the Kazakhstan youth revealed dissatisfaction with basic requirements. About a half of youth are dissatisfied with the low sizes of the salary, grants and the high prices of food, the minister of religious affairs and civil society Nurlan Ermekbayev said during the meeting of the government.
"They are disturbed by questions of employment, housing, receipt of the higher education. The youth is also concerned by safety issues. According to the State Office of Public Prosecutor, more than a half of crimes of violent nature are made against minors. The role of parents in education of children remains insufficient. According to the World Health Organization, Kazakhstan takes the 2nd place in the world on suicides among youth after India. At the same time, according to experts, 90% of all cases of a children's suicide are a call for help," Nurlan Ermekbayev said.
Over 83% watch TV, listen to music, spend time in the Internet. One of the reasons of it is commercialization and inaccessibility of culture and sport.
"Use of budgetary funds in the sphere of youth policy requires attention. According to social polls from 40 to 50% of youth only in general heard about such programs "Affordable Housing", "ERM", "With Diploma to Village" and others. In 2015 knew only 6% of respondents about the youth resource centers. Thus, it is possible to note the insufficient level of information work," the minister said.
