Suicide rates higher for people who grew up during Irish Troubles – study

Suicide rates higher for people who grew up during Irish Troubles – study | Counselling and Mental Health | Scoop.it

Queen's University Belfast researchers say suicide rate of middle-aged men has near-doubled since Good Friday accord.

 

Prof Mike Tomlinson of the QUB school of sociology, social policy and social work said many people at end of the Troubles failed to cope with "the transition to peace".

 

"[This] means that externalised aggression is no longer socially approved. It becomes internalised instead," the authors wrote in the journal International Sociology.

 

Tomlinson pointed out that in the decade from the Good Friday agreement those most affected coped "by means of mass medication with anti-depressants, alcohol and non-prescription drugs", which had increased dramatically in the period of peace.

"The puzzle is, why have we seen a dramatic increase in the [suicide] rate since 1998? What this research reveals for the first time is that the age groups with the highest suicide rates are the cohort who were children during the worst years of the violence."

A new study finds that the technique facilitates traditional psychotherapy for Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.
