Scientific study documents that the economic crisis has catapulted suicides in Greece (The impact of economic austerity and prosperity events on suicide in Greece)
Now that they finally elected someone that seems to do a much better job addressing the concerns of the people hopefully this will reverse itself soon in Greece but India and many other countries are having the same problem and even in Greece there are already some signs that they might not do more than they have to if they can get away with it. One of the latest offers being considered will replace the loans to be paid on the condition of a growing economy; which might mean that they could be settled with them indefinitely.
If the IMF, World Bank and World Trade Organization have their way they won't consider the way these debts piled up or if they were the result of tactics used in company stores on a global basis where a small segment of society controls the entire economy and rigs it so that the rest of society can never maintain a decent life and pay off their debts at the same time.
Or as the saying goes "debt = slavery" especially if that debt is the result of a rigged system.
