The South African Depression and Anxiety Group have encouraged those learners, who failed their matric to go back and study again.
According to SADA, 9.5 percent of teenage deaths in South Africa are caused by suicide.
One of the triggers could be exam disappointment.
SADA said pupils who may be feeling disappointed with their matric results can speak to a Lifeline counselor.
Meanwhile the Denocratic Aliance Youth has congratulated the 2012 matric class.
DA Youth Leader Makashule Gana said learners who have not received confirmation of acceptance at universities to explore other options, like Further Education and Training Colleges.
Gana said for learners who will be celebrating the release of the results, the DA Youth asks that they celebrate this success responsibly.
