The chief psychiatrist of the Sverdlovsk region Oleg Serdyuk and the chief regional psychotherapist Mikhail Pertsel noted a decrease in the number of suicides in the Urals and explained the reasons. This was reported by "AiF-Ural" on Wednesday, November 10. According to statistics for 2017, 472 suicides occurred in the region, an indicator of 11.2 per 100 thousand population.

As the chief psychotherapist of the Sverdlovsk region Mikhail Pertsel said, now there is a clear trend in the decrease in the number of suicides in the region. The main reason is to improve the general psychological situation in society. He also noted that the peak of suicidal activity of the population was observed in the late 90s, when the entire system changed and the Lyuli lost their life orientations. However, every year there is a clear downward trend in the number of suicides. “Now we see a tendency to return to well-being,” added Mikhail Pertsel.

As the chief regional psychotherapist noted, the peak of suicides in the region was observed in 1998-2000, when thousands of people were counted. As Mikhail Pertsel explained, the indicator is calculated as the number of completed suicides per 100 thousand of the population. According to the WHO, 20 per 100 thousand per year is already a critical indicator, and at the end of the 90s in the Sverdlovsk region this figure reached about 48-50 per the same number of people. This is more than 2,000 deaths a year from suicide.

The chief psychiatrist of the Sverdlovsk region, Oleg Serdyuk, also noted that the level of stigmatization of mental illness is also gradually decreasing. More and more people are starting to seek help from doctors.
