Following the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster in March, 2011, troubling tales of depression and suicide started to trickle in. “One man I know went back to check his house,” a woman told CNN last year. “When he didn’t return his family went to find him. His car was parked outside. He had hanged himself. I think he’d given up, he couldn’t see any future.”

But now, those trickles have turned into a steady stream, the National Police Agency said Thursday morning.
