Suicide will be hip again

It’s almost time. A few more benefit payouts and a day out with the kids. After that you can go loss. After a period of high unemployment comes a time of high suicide rates. Based on statements from progressive MP Jim Anderton out of Christchurch. According to Jim there are 500 suicides each year and the high levels of unemployment for teenagers cause crime and depression. Which of course causes young New Zealanders to grab some rope, overdose on pills or shoot a bullet through their brain. The scientists don’t all agree with Jim. According to University of Otago Professor, David Fergusson, mental health issues are a way bigger factor. Being crazy makes you do strange things.
