In our line of business, we are very aware of the risk of suicide across the state, and how it can devastate those left behind. The global pandemic has certainly sparked an increase in domestic abuse, hate crime, riots across the US, but also cases of suicide. Here’s why suicide is on the rise and why it’s linked to the global pandemic. Sadly when it comes to fighting a global pandemic, certain measures have to be taken to limit the spread of infection. With Covid-19, this involves social distancing and isolation of those infected. Protecting the most vulnerable in our society is essential, but lockdowns and strict new rules and regulations come at a cost. People suffering from mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and stress can easily become overwhelmed at the thought of being isolated from friends and family. And when depression spirals out of control, the risk of suicide becomes greater across the US.

 

As the media tends to sensationalize the global pandemic, those who are suffering from anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions can become much worse, as the fear of becoming infected or infecting others sets in. Add isolation into the mix and this can be enough pressure and fear to lead to suicidal thoughts and in some cases people going through with it.

 

Unfortunately, the number of suicides in Georgia has increased this year, as riots against lockdowns have taken place, and restrictions have been enforced. New data from the Georgia Department of Education’s student health survey has found that more students are contemplating suicide and one in ten have experienced serious thoughts about suicide, one in twenty have also attempted suicide at least once. If you are dealing with a crime scene and in particular suicide, you should never attempt to clean and sanitize it yourself. With the global pandemic, you can never be too careful and by attempting to clean a crime scene without proper equipment and protection, you are putting yourself at risk.
