A new report has found that suicides across the world have been on the rise since the global economic crisis began in 2008.
The figures increased in parts of Europe and the downturn seemed to affect more men than women.
There has been an almost 50 percent increase in suicides over the last few years.
Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports from London, the UK's capital, where she met one man who was pushed close to the edge after losing his job.
