Who is Most at Risk for Death by Suicide?
Global suicide rates are rising. If you want to understand what’s happening, and how most recommended to prevent this trend from carrying on, Laci from DNews examines the underlying elements that lead people to take their own lives.
(November 2010) More than 30,000 Americans carry out suicide every year; hundreds of thousands more attempt it but fail. As a deliberate act to end one’s own life, suicide seems taboo in a culture relatively obsessed with improving health and prolonging life.
The possibility of suicide varies considerably by race, sex, and age, and by personal characteristics including education, occupation, family history, and place of residence. For each group, however, depression and substance abuse are essential risk factors for suicide.
