SUICIDE: Break the Silence

Posted by Sandra On February - 19 - 2013

Depression and sorrow

Many young people face high levels of stress and confusion, along with family problems. When you throw in raging hormones, it sometimes seems more than a teen can handle. Perhaps it’s not surprising that teen suicide is increasingly common. In fact, suicide is the third leading cause of death among people between the ages of 10 and 24, with about 4,400 lives lost each year. Males comprise 84% of all suicides.

However, attempted suicides greatly outnumber suicides. Because males often choose more violent methods in their attempts, they are often more successful. But females may attempt suicide more often than males. In 2009, 6.3% of high school students (grades 9-12) attempted suicide. Of those, 8.1% were female, 4.6% were male.

If you have ever seriously contemplated suicide it’s important to take this very seriously. Contact a trusted adult or a mental health professional immediately. It’s also important to know the suicide risk factors, so you can help yourself, a friend, or a family member if suicide ever becomes an issue.
