Greek debt crisis has implications on the suicide rate which is violently exploding.

The suicide rate is the highest in 30 years in Greece. New survey link it to the country’s strict austerity.

Greece’s austerity policy has deadly consequences for the country’s inhabitants. According to a new study from the scientific journal, the British Medical Journal Open (BMJ).

The researchers conclude that Greece’s suicide rate is the highest in 30 years and that it is related to the tight austerity, as the country has been governed since 2008.

The survey included the Greek suicide from 1983 to 2012. The figures show that the number of suicides increased by 13 percent in 2008.

When the country was forced to further inroads into the economy in June 2011, the effect was also clear. The month increased suicides by 35 percent. This corresponds to 11.2 extra suicide a month on average.

Hopelessness in the population

In the study the researchers call for more public awareness of the Greek austerity, andsuicides the consequences it may subsequently have on the suicide rate.

Between 1983 and 2012 took 11,505 of their own lives. 9079 men and 2426 women.

Greece’s high unemployment, cuts in welfare and the increase in homeless has created stress and a sense of hopelessness in the population, says the assessment in a news release from BMJ.

Although Greece has historically one of the lowest suicide rates in the world, it seems that the country has been more affected by the global financial crisis than any other European country, the researchers write in the press release.

Most men take their own lives.

In the 30 years covered by the study spanned, was one of four suicide among women.

As with the men rose suicides among women also strongly after Greece managed to haul more austerity over the head in 2011. That year in May took 36 percent more women their own lives.

In the study, researchers looked at the same time on how the Greek measures, there were signs of wealth, played into the suicide rate. For example, the suicide rate fell short by 27 percent among men when the euro was introduced in Greece in January 2002.

One Response to Greek debt crisis has implications on the suicide rate which is violently exploding.!

  1. Hi Kurt,
    You hit the target again but let me add that also Italy and other country notoriously known for low suicide rate have assisted to an abruptly increase of it. We are inside a non declared WWIII that we like or not. There have been a mutual agreement between Judaic-Christian powers against other Religions. Media and newspaper are very often surrogates of such powers, just turn on western TV to only see american violence with a main theme “we are here to rescue you”, that’s the main theme of film and shortfilm. There’s no prevention of but the acting of rescuing after the problem has exploded. This is applied from family to business topics….but I stop my disquisition and I wish people who loves human being cooperate to stop this brain massacre.
    With my best regard for you.
    Angelo
