Did a google and the first thing that popped up was this from the BBC.

Australia's severe drought has led to an alarming rise in the number of suicides among farmers.

One farmer takes his life every four days, according to the national mental health body Beyond Blue.

I agree with farmertony, nothing is worth that.
