Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Suicide Rate 'among Highest in Europe' - Experts
File photo by BGNES

Bulgaria's suicide rate is among the highest in Europe, local experts alarmed on Monday.

Speaking at a conference in the Black Sea city of Burgas, psychologists named poverty and stress as the main reasons behind the suicide wave that shocked the Balkan country recently.

The psychologists urged Bulgarian citizens to seek professional help whenever they start feeling depressed, noting that Bulgarians rarely turn to psychologists for help.

Last Monday, a nationwide suicide prevention campaign was launched in EU's poorest member state.

A total of six people set themselves on fire in EU's poorest member state over the last month. Four of them passed away.

In addition to self-immolation, a suicide wave seems to have invaded Bulgaria with daily reports about people hanging themselves, jumping for bridges and high-story buildings, and throwing themselves under trains, among other

Really awful. I can't get my head round how anyone can be desperate enough set themselves on fire, what a truly dreadful way to go.


All the more reason to offer any work possible to the people in your village rather than to Joe Bloggs because he's British. I don't know how else we can help.

Yes i can vouch for the pain and suffering that is left behind. as my step-son Niki,commited suicide on 9th May 2012, here in London, and to make matters even worse (if thats possible)Tanya (my Bulgarin wife) found him in his flat. As you can imagine she is still devastated almost a year later.
As some of you know I used to write a journal about our adventures on our visits to Bulgaria, but as you can imagine our adventures are on hold at the moment, I can only hope that as the saying goes,"
time will heal a little"
and although Tanya will never get over it, hopefully she may get stronger and we can get back to something like a normal life again.

Dreadful news Mike. Give my very best to Tanya (not that I imagine it would help very much). I hope that, as times drags its feet slowly forward, that you can both return to a normal life given such a kick.

All very sad stuff indeed! As you all realise, it's the ones who are left behind who suffer. My sons lovely girlfriend had to bury her father last week after he took his own life and the grief and suffering this sweet 18 yr old is going through now brings a tear to my eye every time I see her. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

As I have already said, this is all very sad and one must have to be pretty desperate to finish one's life this way
Is a sign of the times, the world we live in, for what ever reason it makes me shudder to think how I would handle a situation like this if confronted with it. Condolences to all concerned

The Bulgarian man, who set himself on fire in the southern town of Smolyan on Wednesday, died Friday afternoon, doctors announced.

Ventsislav Kozarev, 47, set himself on fire in front of a retail store in the Bulgarian mountain town of Smolyan early on Wednesday and his condition remained very critical until his death.

He was rushed to a specialized hospital in the second-biggest Bulgarian city of Plovdiv in a serious condition with third-degree burns over 80 per cent of his body.

According to unconfirmed information the man had personal motives and was desperate over a recent divorce.

Bulgaria has witnessed an unprecedented wave of self-immolations recently, with at least seven people setting themselves on fire since mid-February.

Six of them proved fatal.

Recent protests throughout the EU's poorest nation forced the previous government to resign in February.

Self immolation is just beyond comprehension. Utterley horrific. I'm used to hearing about it out here in Asia in places like Nepal but to hear of it in Europe has been shocking to me.

Here - we tend to have homicide-suicide. Women jump out of buildings clutching their babies, or husbands kill their wives and kids and then jump. ..Its always about lack of money and stress at work.

Very very sad world we live in :(
