  1. Debt and suicidal behaviour in the Finnish general population.

    Article - En anglais

    We studied the significance of debt as a risk factor for suicidal ideation and suicide attempts in a nation-wide sample (n=4868) of the Finnish general population.

    Those experiencing difficulties in repaying their debts more often than others (37 vs. 16%, P<0.001) had a probable minor mental disorder (GHQ-12 score >=3).

    Nevertheless, difficulties in repaying debts were found to be a factor independently associated with suicidal ideation (OR. 2.8 : 95% CI, 1.9-4.2).

    The clinical implication of these findings is that individuals experiencing difficulties in repaying their debts may require psychiatric evaluation as well as socio-economic counselling.
