Abstract: "World statistics (EURO Multicentre on Parasuicide, 2006) show that women undertake suicidal attempts more often than men. On average,there are three female’s parasuicides to one man’s, especially in the age range of 24—34. Moreover, the number of suicidal gestures in the group of women is significantly larger than number of parasuicides; at the same time, the number of parasuicides is several times greater than the number of suicides (Doprat and Boswell, 1963). The diversity of suicidal behaviours according to sex registered for many generations is relatively constant (Jarosz, 1997)".
