‘Pay link to sui­cide risk’

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

THE low­est-paid work­ers are at a greater risk of sui­cide, a men­tal health char­ity has claimed.

Re­search from the Men­tal Health Foun­da­tion Scot­land, which is con­tained in its Poverty and Men­tal Health re­port, warns that low pay and job in­se­cu­rity are linked to poorer men­tal health and higher sui­cide rates.

The char­ity is call­ing on em­ploy­ers to sup­port work­ers with men­tal health prob­lems to re­tain their jobs, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing bouts of ill health.
