Swedish study links suicide and social exclusion (segregation)

A recent study in Sweden found links between social exclusion (segregation) at a young age and greater risk of suicide.

A quote from the study relevant to the wound of impoverishment of experience, as well as material poverty:

“This view emphasises the importance of taking the emotional and social poverty of children just as seriously as their material poverty when it comes to suicide.”

The article mentions Durkheim and Merton. Merton wrote about social roles, a concept obviously intrinsic to Social Role Valorization.
