Objectives
A complete set of suicide notes has been obtained for 1993. About 30% of those committing suicide leave a note or other message. This is the first attempt in Hong Kong to analyze what these say as a means of looking at the causes of suicide and the themes that emerge as significant to those intending to take their own lives.
