Suicidal Behaviors Increased over 50% in Spanish Region due to Lockdowns, Young Women and Minors Worst Affected

Suicidal ideation and suicide attempts increased significantly in the Spanish region of Catalonia due to the pandemic, a recent study suggests.

The study, published in Lancet Psychiatry, looks at data from Catalonian hospitals across three periods: pre-lockdown (1 January 2018 until the implementation of the Spanish lockdown ion 14 March 2020); the lockdown (14 March 2020 until June 21 2020); and post-lockdown (21 June 20202 to 31 December 2022).

The results show a modest increase in suicidal ideation and attempts in the pre-lockdown period, followed by a reduction during the lockdown, and then a 50.77% increase after the lockdowns were lifted.

“The initial reduction during the strict quarantine may be explained because people have less access to methods of suicide, among other reasons,” explains the study lead author, Dr. Víctor Serrano-Gimeno.

“And the subsequent increase after the lockdown reflects complex factors, including social isolation and economic challenges.”
