I'm writing a paper about the threats of cyberbullying and require some help.
My question is I want to explain that cyberbullying can not only damage one's emotion and feeling but can also results in suicide in some severe cases.
However, I find the term suicide some what extreme and controversial.
I will be having a public speech about my paper and don't want to upset any audiences using extreme term.
Should a phrase 'taking one's life' be replaced for the term suicide?
English isn't my native language, so I'm going to need some help.
Thank you in advance.
