A new study finds Greece has one of the lowest suicide rates in Europe
A new report has found Greece has the highest suicide rate in Europe.
The study, published in the European Journal of Psychiatry, analysed the data of over 20,000 people in Greece.
The researchers found that in 2010, there were 4,971 suicides among Greeks, while the suicide rate for the European Union was 3,081 people per 100,000 population.
In comparison, the UK’s suicide rate was 2,934 people per 1,000,000 inhabitants.
The report found that the suicide rates for Greece and the UK are linked to several factors, including the fact that suicide attempts are more common in Greece, the high rate of mental health services in Greece and an overall lack of awareness of suicide.
“Greece is the world’s largest country for suicides.
It’s a large country with a large population, which is why we see so many suicides,” said Dr Rene Loesche, the lead author of the study and professor at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.”
The suicide rate is high in Greece because of the high rates of depression and substance use, but that’s not a problem that only affects people in the rural areas, so there’s no obvious reason to believe suicide is a major problem in Greece.”
The study’s authors noted that suicide is rare in Europe, although there has been a surge in suicides in recent years.
“There is a lot of research out there, and it’s all very well talking about the European Commission’s suicide prevention plan, but it’s a very incomplete picture,” said Loeschet.
“What we’re doing is trying to figure out what the real problem is.”
In the study, the researchers looked at the suicide risk in Greece by using a variety of methods, including interviews, medical records, death certificates, and data from the country’s Ministry of Health and Social Security.
They also looked at suicide rates and trends in other countries, including Australia and the US.
The findings are not yet public, but Loeschel said that it would be interesting to see the findings in other parts of the world, including in the US and the Philippines.
“We need to get to a place where we are more open about the data that we collect, and have access to that information,” he said.
“Hopefully, that will help us to understand what is happening.”
