Dying from Inequality
Dying from Inequality is Samaritans’ report into socioeconomic disadvantage and suicidal behaviour. Produced in conjunction with leading academics, it sets out how low income and unmanageable debt, unemployment, poor housing, and other socioeconomic factors contribute to high suicide rates in the most disadvantaged communities.
The report makes a number of recommendations for action, and calls on government, businesses, industry and sector leaders to work together so that fewer people die by suicide.
Inequality is killing people, says Samaritans Scotland Executive Director James Jopling
