"Recession's ultimate price" by Cyndy Cole

"Arizona Daily Sun" 12/4/11

Coconino County is likely to break it's own record for suicides.

Job losses, hopelessness, substance abuse and a lack of help are contributing to suicide rates greater then those during the great depression.

In Coconino County Alone:

35 suicides this year

from 2001 to 2011 there are 21 suicides a year

and in 2011 there were 81 suicide attempts in Coconino County
