Occupation is not much of a factor in suicide. Psychologists have researched on this and found that among the top predictors for suicide are diagnosable mental disorder, loss of social support , stress etc.

However different researches shows different data. A study shows that Food batch-makers and Physicians have the highest suicide rates. Another research shows that veterinarians have the highest suicide rate in Britain.

It is not that veterinary medicine is a depressing profession that the rate is high, but is thought to be that vets have easy access to what they know is a painless method, plus the expertise to self-administer. Makes you wonder how many people really don't want to be here, but lack the resources to bow out in a way acceptable to them.

Its up to the individual to make a decision... If it was up to the average social aspect ... Society would probably say... "" don't kill yourself ""

I think linking suicide with occupation is BS, its a personal matter and I do not think its always associated with work.

Police personnel - I read somewhere, because of the stress on the job can be debilitating.
