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.
