Samaritans spokesperson Chantel Scherer-Reid of Samaritans, says:
One in six calls made to Samaritans are about financial stress, with some of these about rent or housing in particular. Although we know that worries about money or the threat of losing a home can cause stress and depression, it’s also important to understand that suicide is complex. It’s seldom the result of a single factor and likely to have several inter-related causes.
