Due to the difficult economic conditions there is an increase in the number of people affected by mental health issues in UK. Owing to the prevailing sense of instability there has been an increased suicidal tendency among working people.

Many are suffering from a sense that because of the shutdown they are losing control of their lives which is leading them to believe that there are no actions they can take other than suicide. People often feel blocked when their employment is threatened or their projected promotion is not going to happen.

This trend was observed among people aged between 25-65 years.
