En ny internationell studie visar att antalet självmord under pandemin inte ökade – tvärtom sjönk siffrorna i vissa områden, rapporterar Sveriges Radio Ekot.

Studien, som nyligen publicerats i tidskriften Lancet Psychiatry gjordes på 21 medel- och höginkomstländer under fyra månader förra året.

– I vissa länder blev det färre, i vissa länder var det stabilt men det var inga länder som visade högre antal, säger professor Ellenor Mittendorfer-Rutz vid Karolinska Institutet till Ekot.
