Saint Lucia police are investigating a report of a suspected suicide in Choiseul, received at about 6:00 am on Saturday.
The deceased was in his forties.
In the past, the Ministry of Health and Wellness has urged individuals or family members who may know someone experiencing an emotional crisis to use the national helpline #203 to speak to a professional.
The call is free, confidential, and accessible using a landline or mobile telephone.
Call responders are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assess what issues a suicidal individual may be experiencing and connect them to an appropriate service.
A Health Ministry official disclosed the importance of recognising signs that should cause concern.
They include posting social media messages about death, people talking about wanting to kill themselves and experiencing hopelessness and a loss of purpose.
The Ministry of Health noted that the battle against suicide is a communal effort.
