Item #: SCP-CN-2574

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: As the task of monitoring the behavior of all humans worldwide at all times has been deemed impossible, and the object does not produce any change in Hume levels, prevention and containment of the anomaly is impossible to attain. As the circumstances of the deaths caused by the object are highly similar to those of non-anomalous suicides, coverup operations are similarly deemed impossible. The Foundation is currently monitoring suicide rates throughout the world, reserving the Ennui Protocol as a final measure, and carrying out long-term monitoring and planning.

Description: SCP-CN-2754 is a series of anomalous embellished emotional atmospheres, which eventually cause suicidal ideation and action in individuals or groups. As suicide is one of the major problems facing public health and mental health in today's society, and is itself driven by complex, long-term patterns of normal psychological activity, the first occurrence of SCP-CN-2574, and whether any given suicide is a result of normal psychological and social conditions or the anomaly, is impossible to determine at present.

SCP-CN-2574 is only defined through the Standard Foundation Anomalous Phenomena Definition Guide1 and Anomalous Mind-Affecting Threshold Standard.

Around the time of the event's occurrence, the affected subject will express a variety of negative emotions such as irritation, fear, sadness, etc. and eventually decide to end their own lives. It is unknown if SCP-CN-2574 possesses contagious properties, as witnessing the death of a human being can cause negative emotional effects.
