Suicide Among Children and Young Adults
A scourge by any measure, suicide is particularly devastating when it involves children, teenagers, and young adults. Consider this national data:
Suicide rates among adolescents and young adults in America nearly tripled between 1952 and 1996.
Between 1980 and 1996, suicide rates almost doubled among 14-15 year olds and rose by 14% in the 15-19 age group.
"As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind I'd still be in prison."
