Moving house linked to attempted suicides



A study found that children who had moved house were more than three times more likely to have suicidal thoughts. Usually feeling ignored during the decision to move, and losing contact with friends and uprooting them from familiar surroundings meant that they were more likely to attempt suicide than those who hadn’t moved as much. The research by the University of Aarhus, Denmark, said the findings suggested that stability was important for a child’s wellbeing.
