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.
