Support offered to depression sufferers
WILLOW Women's Centre says it is concerned at the rise in suicides, particularly among young men and women.
More than 6,000 people took their own lives last year – one of the worst years on record.
Economic circumstances and the disappearance of traditional male jobs are partly blamed for the rise.
The Samaritans recently reported that men living in deprived areas were ten times more likely to die by suicide than those living in the most affluent areas.

A spokesman for Willow's Women's Centre, on the same site as Hall Road Primary, said: "The headlines hide the rise in women suicide too, though it's much smaller.
"Younger women, particularly between 15 and 29, rarely ever appeared in past statistics.
"But they appear now.
"If you're worried about yourself, we'll put you in touch with the right people, and we will be here for you throughout. We offer a non-judgmental safe place to meet people and learn new skills, to help you build your confidence, or take your mind off depression or stress.
