Facts about Suicide
  • Most suicidal individuals desperately want to live; they are just unable to see alternatives to their problems.
  • Most suicidal individuals give definite warnings of their suicidal intentions, but others are either unaware of the significance of these warnings or do not know how to respond to them.
  • Talking about suicide does not cause someone to be suicidal.
  • Surviving family members not only suffer the trauma of losing a loved one to suicide, they also may be at higher risk for suicide and emotional problems.
  • Approximately 32,000 Americans kill themselves every year. The number of suicide attempts is much greater and often results in serious injury.
  • Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people ages 15-24, and it is the eighth leading cause of death among all persons.
  • Youth (15-24) suicide rates increased more than 200% from the 1950’s to the late 1970’s. Following the late 1970’s, the rates for youth suicide have remained stable.
  • The suicide rate is higher among the elderly (over 65) than any other age group.
  • Four times as many men kill themselves as compared to women, yet three times as many women attempt suicide as compared to men.
  • Suicide occurs across all age, economic, social, and ethnic boundaries.
  • Firearms are currently the most utilized method of suicide by essentially all groups (male, female, young, old, white, non-white).
