A rise in suicides in Europe and the US during the recent financial crisis is the "tip of the iceberg" according to one expert.
Oxford University's Professor David Stuckler co-authored a study that found thousands more people - mostly men - committed suicide during the 2008 - 2010 recession.
Suicides are just the tip of the iceberg. These data reveal a looming mental health crisis in Europe and North America.
In these hard economic times, this research suggests it is critical to look for ways of protecting those who are likely to be hardest hit.
