Climate change linked to increase in Australia's suicide rates: QUT study
Date:2/19/2014

the body such as levels of serotonin - which is related to wellness and happiness.

Dr Qi said the study also found there were two significant suicide clusters in Australia - Mornington Shire (northwest of Queensland) and the Bathurst-Melville area (north of the Northern Territory), especially after the mid-1990s.

"We also found some suburbs of Adelaide identified as major clusters in male suicide.

"These areas were low socio-economic areas or with high Indigenous populations."

Dr Qi said the study had important implications for evidence-based public health policy on suicide control and prevention.

He said unemployment and temperature change had an interactive effect on suicide.

"Even though Australia has suicide control and prevention plans, few consider the impact of environmental factors in suicide prevention programs," he said.

"There needs to be more attention to the potential of increased suicide risks posed by climate change, especially in vulnerable groups like the unemployed or Indigenous communities."
