A new study has found that there is a strong direct relationship between the spike in suicide rates and hard economic times.
According to a research published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) on Wednesday, growing unemployment and economic woes may have been the cause of some 1,000 suicides among British people between 2008 and 2010.
Investigating the official figures to determine the effect of economic crisis on the suicide rates, the study revealed that although the rate in Britain had fallen to a record low in 2007, it took a hike in 2008 and 2009 with a rise in jobless figures.
