A government survey says the Japanese youth are the most likely to think about killing themselves while one quarter of the whole population have considered suicide.

According to the report released by the Cabinet Office on May 2, 2012, a large number of the people of Japan, which is one of the most developed countries in the world, have suicidal thoughts, Press TV reports.

Recession has influenced the lives of younger people in Japan who cannot find a job after finishing college or university, said Kaoru Saito of Japan’s Suicide Prevention Planning Office.

Families of these people are also unable to provide them with financial support, he added.

A Buddhist nun who offers consultation to more than 140 suicidal people each month believes that this trend is not simply the result of the economic situation of the country.

Loneliness causes depression in many of these people who then lose their purpose in life, she told Press TV.

The Japanese government is now working with a number of groups to reevaluate its tactics regarding suicide prevention in the Asian country.

    Young academically gifted Japanese college students with no purpose in life?No employment opportunities for what they majored in?I have an excellent idea!Let there be an employment lottery among this group of academically gifted college graduates for employment in the U.S.A.!Maybe the immigration department can conduct this scheme along with potential employers.The immigration department would issue a green card for those college grads that get their numbers called and be eligible for long term employment and residence in the U.S.A..Those that arrive in the U.S.A. Should be happy to get the chance to work and live in the U.S.A. and take any type of job offered to them,this should help relieve them of their depressions.One more thing,please google “Japanese wall of pussy”!
