Family breakdown

Family breakdown and disregard for the sanctity of life are among the key factors local counsellors have linked to the troubling trend of suicide that Barbados has experienced in recent times.
“It’s not really even about money or the recession,” says Father Clement Paul of St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cathedral.
“From my counselling, it’s at the level of relationships and family that seem to be causing people the most stress.”
Paul said they had a number of people seeking counselling in that area, and cited the breakdown of the family as a major cause of the problems many younger people were now facing.
