The Kenya Psychiatric Association petitions high court on attempted suicide

According to the 2020 Kenya National Bureau of Statistics’ Economic Survey, 196 cases of attempted suicide were reported in 2019. According to police records, about 420 suicide deaths occur in Kenya annually. It is nearly impossible to get accurate figures on suicide in Kenya given the taboo nature of the subject. Attempted suicide is a misdemeanor under the Kenyan penal code and carries a prison term of up to two years or a fine or both.
