PETALING JAYA: Batu Kawan MP Kasthuri Patto has called for the creation of a 'National Suicide Prevention Strategy' and to allocate more funding for the National Suicide Registry Malaysia, as a concrete step in suicide prevention.

Kasthuri said that there were more and more Malaysians who took their own lives as a result of being unable to cope with stress, rejection and discrimination, with stigmatisation, and the inability to communicate or cry out for help when they needed it.
