Below I posted a couple of graphs of the suicide rates in America and it's seems obvious that the increase after 1930 was due in part to the Great Depression but what about the earlier increase, from 1907 to 1915?  According to the NBER, there were several economic shocks over that period:
May 1907(II) to June 1908 (II)
January 1910(I) to January 1912 (IV)
January 1913(I) to December 1914 (IV)
