"Suicide is a rare outcome of mental illness but this means that these data are likely the most visible indicator of major depression and anxiety disorders among people living through the financial crisis, as revealed by recent research in Spain and Greece"

According to statistics, from 1999 to 2007, the suicide rate went up every year by about 0.12 suicides per 100,000 people. The rate of increase quadrupled from 2008 to2010.  

Researchers suggested the implementation of programs to help unemployed people find jobs and provide them with social support and mental health programs to lessen the impact of recession.
