"Every suicide is tragic and sad." I agree with this statement 100%.
An esteemed psychiatrist
from Harvard University
, one Dr. Clark, has stated in reference to his research on cults:
"the mark (recruit) is placed in a panicky, disoriented state, and an emotional crisis is manufactured by the recruiters. One response to this is that people can become psychotic."
Now we need to look at the relationship between psychosis and suicide
. There is a strong link between the two.
In the British Medical Journal
, we see this:“Suicide is a major cause of death among people who develop psychotic illness.
The period between the onset of symptoms and adequate treatment is known to be a period with a greatly increased incidence of self-harm and violence to others. A recent meta-analysis found that 18.4% of first-episode patients had self-harmed or attempted suicide
prior to initial treatment…”
So 18.4% of patients newly-diagnosed with psychosis self-harm or attempt suicide. This is far higher than the rate of self-harm and suicide among the general public.
Cult recruitment processes can cause psychosis
in susceptible people and psychosis increases a person's risk of suicide. So there is certainly a significant link there.
To accept that that Mooji Group are actively putting their members at risk you would have to accept that they are indeed a cult
and that they are purposely indoctrinating people.
I'm sure many people who read this forum do not accept those two variants, hence inferring any correlation between cult activity and suicide would be pointless to them.
You may be able to guess what my own stance is....
