Psychological Impact of the Great Depression
Family life had been changing dramatically during the twentieth century and the transformation continued during the Depression. Keeping families together during economic hardship became difficult as people lost their homes. Children had to grow up faster during the depression. Violence and child abuse increased during the Depression. Suicide became a part of everyday conversation, particularly as the stories of bankrupt Wall Street traders jumping from tall office buildings. The national suicide rate did increase in late 1929 and continued to increase until 1933. The Great Depression caused many scars in the U.S. history.
