Zoraya ter Beek, a 28-year-old lady living from a village in the Netherlands has decided to end her life. According to reports, her debilitating mental health issues led her to choose euthanasia even though she was physically well.

She anticipates being put to sleep early in May of this year even though she lives with two cats and is in love with her 40-year-old boyfriend.

Ter Beek has struggled with her mental health her entire life, and she used to dream of becoming a psychiatrist.

Speaking on her battles with mental illness, she revealed that she had been advised by psychiatrists that there was nothing further they could do to help her. Nothing will ever get better. She made the decision to choose euthanasia at that point. She continued, “I was always very clear that I can’t do this anymore if it doesn’t get better.” She has borderline personality disorder, autism, and depression.

According to reports, an increasing number of people are choosing to terminate their life while dealing with a variety of other mental health conditions, such as anxiety or despair, which are made worse by social media, climate change, economic insecurity, and other challenges.

How will the procedure take place?

The surgery is scheduled to happen at ter Beek’s residence. Her physician will give her a sedative initially, then give the medication to stop her heart. Ter Beek’s remains will be burned and dispersed in a specific area of the forest.
