For people on the brink, losing a job can mean losing an important reason for living.

Local professionals fear high unemployment will increase the number of people who take their own lives, even as the state’s suicide rate is already up since 2008.

“For families that have been able to deal with problems as the economy went on, morale is beginning to fall apart,” said Kirk Halliday, executive director of the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Erie and Ottawa Counties.“They may decide to give up.”

A recently released study indicates unemployment could account for a quarter of the increase in suicides in America between 2007 and 2010 — about 1,330 deaths, according to research published in the Lancet, a medical journal.

The trend holds true outside the United States as well. In Europe, more than 1,000 additional suicides are attributable to the economic recession in the United Kingdom. Suicide rates rose more than 60 percent in Greece since 2007, according to research cited in the journal.

Dec. 28 Th. unemployment for 2 million people runs out, these are people that did work not the leaches that are abusing the system. Meanwhile Obama is in Asia and still do budget, does he really care?

WARRIOR, do you even read what you post?

Have you ever heard of anyone committing SUICIDE in a gas chamber? What a genius you are, I'm really impressed by so much intelligence! Or is it you are a gas chamber specialist since gas chambers are is still part of US enforcement of sentences in some states.

Your Nazi crap is getting old honey. It just shows how miserable you are - you can't deny my point so you think your calling me a Nazi would help you get away from the sad truth - your post are nothing but stirring the pot and grousing.

You have to cut Ralph some slack. Have you seen his wife/brother? He has been dealt a cruel hand yet you people would mock him. Shame on you.

What did you NAZIS call it over there in your fatherland when you were KILLING millions of people? The Final Solution? What was it called little hitler, can you tell me? The U.S. learned about gas chambers from you NAZIS, obviously it was a very effective way of getting rid of MILLIONS of people because you barbaric hethans used it daily on old men, women and children. I bet you are real proud of that aren't you! Do you even read the hate you spread? I don't blame you for posting outside your strictly government controlled liberal country over here in this free country. Too bad you can't enjoy what we have! Your fault, it's the NAZI LIBERAL way I guess!

Maybe it's the language barrier that makes your reading comprehension skills so poor! Maybe it's the fact that you have a little NAZI left in you and you can't stand to be wrong, whatever it is I challenge you to point out where I even mentioned the word SUICIDE! Post it or STFU LIAR! This is what makes YOU LIBERALS so dangerous to the world, you always jump to conclusions before gathering any facts!
