Suicide Increases Among Young Immigrants

New research indicates that suicide has increased significantly among young immigrants in Sweden.

According to official statistics overall suicide is declining here. But, writing in the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter”, psychiatrist and professor of International Health Marcello Ferrada-Noli says that immigrants account for one-third of all suicides among young people in Sweden.

Many of them have come from countries in conflict situations.
