Cost of living: People with long-term illnesses or disabilities are thinking of suicide

Despair: people with long-term illnesses and disabilities are being driven towards suicide because they can’t afford to live in Tory Britain.

You just know the Department for Work and Pensions is already considering this a “positive benefit outcome”:

More people are contemplating suicide as they “cannot cope” as a result of rising costs, charities have said.

Charities supporting those with chronic diseases or disabilities have called for an overhaul of the benefits system.

One woman who has multiple sclerosis (MS) said her costs had almost trebled.

MS Society Wales, said many who come to them were “at the end of their tether”, with the stress often affecting their condition and exacerbating their symptoms.

Disability Wales said it had also seen an increase in mental health issues resulting from the cost of living crisis.
