Highlights We examine the impact of fiscal austerity (FA) on suicide mortality (SM) across the Eurozone periphery. We also control for various economic and socio-demographic differences across countries. The impact of fiscal austerity on SM is gender-, age- and time-specific, and robust to various proxies of FA. FA has short-, medium- and long-run suicide-increasing effects on males in the 65Ð89 age group. Improved labour market institutions can help mitigate the negative effects of FA on SM.
