Suicide rate up in Puerto Rico … ‘Puerto Rico is rapidly becoming the island of magic realism … where public corruption and STP (Stupidity of Those in Power) have reached lethal, surrealistic levels. Is it any wonder that one million people fled the island over the past 15 years, or that suicide levels are rising?’
Speechless … at the sad reality in my country!!
Ten people committed suicide in Puerto Rico over the Christmas holidays. Five of these occurred over the last three days, during the Three Kings weekend.
Clearly, a mental health crisis is developing in Puerto Rico.
The first five suicides were reported over an eight-day period (December 22-28).
December 22 – 64-year old man in Bayamón
December 23 – 27-year old man in Ceiba
December 27– 50-year old man in Rincón
December 30 – 42-year old man in Añasco
Then during the Three Kings weekend (January 6-8) five more suicides were reported in Bayamón, Juana Díaz, Ciales, Ponce and Cidra.
Evidence of great stress on the island
