A silent killer

Over 100,000 people in problem debt attempt suicide in England each year. While there are many complex factors which can lead to someone taking their own life, financial difficulty can play a role.

Our A silent killer report explores this issue in more detail and sets out our recommendations for breaking the link between debt and suicide.


*Suicide is not inevitable, it is preventable. Financial problems can always be resolved. If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal feelings, financial difficulties or mental health problems there is advice and support out there.*

“To be in debt and to have people calling up to fifteen times a day, to have your voicemail full, to have the postman open your letterbox with even more debt letters with even more threats – is too much for anyone. You think your life isn’t worth living.”
