Letter to the Editor
Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
To the Editor: Suicide rates in males are generally higher than in females in most parts of the world. However, this gender gap is narrower in some Asian countries, where suicide among females seems to be more culturally acceptable. Other factors such as the availability of lethal method of suicide, lower women’s status, and inadequate treatment of mental illness are other possible explanations for the narrower gender gap in Asian countries.
