Rome, April 29 - The number of suicides that can be
linked to economic factors has increased in Italy by "20% to
30%" in the last four years, the National Observatory of Health
in Italian Regions said Monday.
Media have reported an apparent spate of suicides by
unemployed people and entrepreneurs facing bankruptcy as the
country struggles with its longest recession in two decades.
The observatory's director, Walter Ricciardi, stressed,
however, that the overall number of suicides "remains low" for a
country of Italy's population.
The observatory said in a report that the use of
anti-depressant drugs in Italy increased four-fold between 2000
and 2011.
