Suicides linked to financial pressures

8th July 2011

Researchers from the UK and America have said that the financial crisis has “almost certainly” led to an increase in suicides across Europe.

They found a rise in suicides was recorded among working age people from 2007 to 2009 in nine of the 10 nations studied with the increase varying between 5% and 17% for under 65s after a period of falling suicide rates. In their findings published in The Lancet reported, researchers said investment in welfare systems was the key to keeping rates down.
