Massive Increase in Worldwide Suicide Rates Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic
The Coronavirus pandemic and subsequent financial devastation created by it, has led to a substantial increase in suicide rates among all age groups. In honor of Van Gogh, VinScént is working hard to stop it.
Sadly, the legendary artist, Vincent Van Gogh, committed suicide due to his struggle with mental illness. Vincent's birthday, March 30th, is International Bipolar Awareness Day.
In honor of Van Gogh, VinScént works in conjunction with mental health organizations and suicide prevention charities to save lives and spread mental health awareness. A portion of the profits from each jewelry piece purchased is donated to help sustain and promote these lifesaving charitable foundations.
"Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me." -Vincent Van Gogh
Sadly, suicide has reached epidemic proportions within the younger generation. Suicide is currently one of the biggest killers of youth in the UK and US.
Scientists have found that this generation's psyche is deeply affected by the impact of social media bullying, basing their value on physical appearance in selfie photos and the number of 'likes' received.
