Suicide and the Japan Economy

June 3rd, 2009 by John

Japan already with one of the highest suicide rates in the world has seen more since the global economic crisis.  The current crisis and the resulting job losses have driven more Japanese to suicide.  There is a record number of Japanese in their 30s.  People from their 20s through their 50s, many of them temporary workers, have committed suicide directly because they lost their job.  Continue to pray for those contemplating ending their own life.
