Downturn

I've thrown up a few posts lately on correlations between economic downturns and mental health (here, here, and here.) Today was the first news I've read of a suicide which, one would have to imagine, was a direct result of financial catastrophe. Here is the story. It's strange to think how, once you amass a certain amount of money, you don't feel like you can stay alive without it.

There was of course this suicide attempt -- not strictly from the financial sector but related to the economic crisis...
