Summary of "The psychological wellbeing of the Lebanese society lies between incremental suicide rates and financial stress."

Suicide rates have been suspected to increase in Lebanon during the last couple of years. While these rates might be increasing due to an increase in the probability of declaring suicide, it seems important to study why suicide, as a phenomenon, might be possibly increasing in the Lebanese society. One of the most important reasons behind this rise in suicide rates could be related to the economical crisis that has been striking the country for more than two years.
