15 Jobs That Push People Over The Edge

15. Health Care Workers

Health care workers might seem like they hand out smiles all day, but they have one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Imagine getting attached to your patients —maybe even loving them — to one day walk into work and find out that they have passed away overnight. Sure, this is to be expected, but how many times can a similar situation occur before it breaks you? Being surrounded by death on a daily basis will surely influence your mental health at one point or another. You might start thinking that the world is a cruel place and gradually grow depressed.

14. Accountants

Accounting can be a deadly affair for most people. In fact, some even categorize this profession as boring, tedious and mind-boggling. However, some individuals do feel as though this is a secure and respectable job. One that has good working conditions with a reasonable salary and so many people decide to pursue this career simply because they do not know what else interests them. Sooner or later, they find themselves dreading the work week and everything it entails.

13. Scientists

Once again, stress is the silent killer, and scientists and lab technicians alike won’t be spared of this tiresome conundrum. It has been said that individuals with high IQ’s are more susceptible to mental disorders — depression being one of them. In fact, out of 100,ooo scientists, 17 commit suicide every year, and these numbers are only growing.

12. Dentists

When you walk into your dentist’s office for your 6 month check-up ( if you go that often), the last thing on your mind is that they might be suicidal, but based on a recent study, dentists have been known to battle against depression.

11. Lawyers

Growing up, becoming a lawyer always sounded like a respectable job. You fight for what’s right, you unravel the truth, and you talk in a certain manner that demands respect. Yet, this does not always seem to be the case. As most of us already know, the legal system does not always fall in favour with the innocent, and sometimes, bad things can happen to good people. As a lawyer, it is your job to make sure your client leaves the courtroom free and happy and not crying in handcuffs.

10. Public Relations 

Corporate executives, managers and public relation officers are also careers that have been known to cause a high level of stress. Each year, 20 out of 100,000 workers commit suicide due to their inability to cope with their many duties and responsibilities.

9. Transportation Workers

Any job that takes you far away from home can have its ups and downs, and so it isn’t surprising to find out that transportation workers are not smiling from ear to ear every single day. In fact, they hardly ever smile. Every year, 22 out of 100,000 transportation workers commit suicide in the United States alone.

8. Computer Programmers

Computer programmers, mathematicians and statisticians are also at risk of falling into the lap of depression. With 23 suicides per 100,000 workers, this is not a job to be taken lightly. Now, many people will wonder why mathematicians and statisticians would ever commit suicide, especially since they are incredibly intelligent. Well, this is not an easy question to answer. So instead, imagine living a life ruled by equations, numbers, theories, data and always being on the verge of hysteria. Do you get it now? That’s what I thought.

7. Artists

Art without feeling is close to impossible. Which is why so many writers, painters or artist in general have faced depression at some point in their lives. It is not an easy thing to have a million thoughts and ideas run through your head on the daily and not be able to properly exert or understand them. Art might be beautiful and uplifting, but it also goes hand-in-hand with sadness, darkness and insanity.

6. Police Officers

Police officers might not be loved by everyone, but they are the first people that come to mind when something goes wrong. Sure, some of them abuse their authoritative powers, but not all of them are bad! Still, they receive a lot of hate from the public and even face disrespect and ridicule while they risk their lives to protect and serve. Not to mention that many of them are killed, targeted and even traumatized by events that they have witnessed.

5. Architects

Architects and engineers have one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Not only do they have to go to school for many years and study for extremely difficult exams, but they also do not have any room for making mistakes. If an architect makes a mistake, it is usually a million dollar one and who wants to be responsible for that? It has been said that architects and engineers have one of the highest suicide rates in the world and believe it or not, but out of 100,000 of these geniuses, over 32 commit suicide every year.

4. Factory Workers

Working in a factory is not a job that many people want.  Still it is a job that puts food on the table and a little extra in your wallet. Many factory workers are people that did not have a chance to have an education or are routed into supplying for their families. Whichever the case might be, not all factories treat their employees with care and respect. Instead, they are treated as replaceable and unimportant. Not to mention that many of these workers work long and strenuous hours in dingy atmospheres for little pay.

3. Maintenance Workers

Many people go into maintenance work be it because they enjoy fixing things or simply helping others out. However, in a recent study, it has been said that mechanics, plumbers, landscapers, janitors and jobs that revolve around installations are not as enjoyable as some might think. In fact, out of 100,000 maintenance workers, over 48 of them commit suicide each year.

2. Miners

Not many people aspire to become a miner, yet it is a necessary job all the same. Every year, the number of suicides committed by the mining community continues to grow at an alarming rate. Sadly, no action is taken by the mining companies to prevent these irreversible losses. It was reported that 53 out of 100,000 workers had committed suicide in one year alone.

1. Farmers

Some people dream of quitting their jobs, moving to the country, and living the low-key life of a farmer. Unfortunately, their dream might be short lived and not as feasible as they once believed it to be. In fact, 85 out of 100,o00 farmers commit suicide every year due to high levels of stress, isolation and injury.
