Tough times: Slow recovery in Las Vegas may be factor in suicide increase

Tough times: Slow recovery in Las Vegas may be factor in suicide increase


Few who killed themselves left notes of explanation, but some experts
blame the recession for the sharp increase in suicides in Clark County
last year.

They say there’s a clear correlation between self-destruction and the
devastation recessions bring, such as job loss and home foreclosures,
both at record levels in Southern Nevada.


However, history suggests there’s more to the story than recessions.
Nevada’s highest suicide rate from 1981 to 2007, the last year for which
national data are available, occurred during a recession in 1982. But
the state’s suicide rate dropped during another recession in 2001,
according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


“There are many factors that may increase the risk of suicidal
behavior,” CDC spokeswoman Gail Hayes said. “Economic stress or job loss
are just two of those factors.”

Add 2 factors to a list of other difficulties that we face as humans and that is more than enough to drive someone over the edge.
