California doctors say they have seen 'a years worth of suicides' in the last month because of the impact lockdown is having on mental health

  • Trauma doctors and nurses at John Muir Medical Center in California say they have seen a year's worth of suicide attempts in just a matter of weeks 
  • Dr Mike deBoisblanc and nurse Kacey Hansen say lockdown needs to be lifted
  • Medics are witnessing a huge amount 'intentional injury' brought on by stress
  • Isolation and job losses are leading to higher number of suicide attempts 
Trauma doctors at a northern California medical center say the hospital they work at has experience more deaths from suicide than from the coronavirus.

The head of the trauma at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek near San Francisco believes the effects of the coronavirus are not just affecting physical health but mental health too.

Dr. Mike deBoisblanc believes that the lockdown restrictions need to end because of the impact they are having on mental health.

Dr Mike deBoisblank, a doctor at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, says lockdown needs to end in order to save lives

Trauma nurse Kacey Hansen agrees the lockdown in California needs to be lifted soon

Medics at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut-Creek (pictured), California have revealed their experiences in the hospital's trauma center after mental health took a nosedive amid lockdown

'Personally I think it's time,' said Dr. Mike deBoisblanc to ABC7. 'I think, originally, this shelter-in-place order was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients.

'We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering.'

'We've never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,' he said. 'I mean we've seen a year's worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.'

DeBoisblanc's colleague, Kacey Hansen, who has worked as a trauma nurse for 33 years also shares his concern.

'What I have seen recently, I have never seen before. I have never seen so much intentional injury.'

'They intend to die,' Hansen said. 'Sometimes, people will make what we call a "gesture". It's a cry for help. We're just seeing something a little different than that right now. It's upsetting.'

'Generally speaking the vast majority of people say they feel better after they call and get the resources they need,' Executive Director Tom Tamura, pictured said

Doctors Hansen and deBoisblanc say they are seeing mainly young adults die by suicide brought on by the stress of isolation and job losses as a result of the quarantine.

California's shelter-in-place policy is set to last until midnight on May 31.

Staff are encouraging those who are feeling depressed to call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline on 1-800-273-TALK.

'Generally speaking the vast majority of people say they feel better after they call and get the resources they need,' Executive Director Tom Tamura said.

'With help comes hope. I think that there are people and organizations out there that you can contact that can get you the information you need and resources you need to get you through this tough time.'

'I think people have found themselves disconnected from the normal supportive networks that they have, churches and schools and book clubs, you name it,' Tamura said. 'And that, coupled with the closure of...
