The reasons which cause suicides are associated with not only social problems, low income and living condition. It’s true that, majority of suicide attempts is committed because of social problems; however, increased rates of domestic violence, violence within the household and problems related to lack of understanding among the young people are considered main reasons of suicide facts.

Another reason of suicides which is frequently come across even in most developed countries is a lack of communication. Thus, the motives of recent suicides committed by young people that registered in Azerbaijan are miscommunication, problems with parents, friends, peers and girlfriends/boyfriend who do not accept them.
