A Grassroots Program for Youth Suicide Prevention (pp. 151-155) $0.00

Abstract:
Suicide is a major public health problem. It affects people of all ages. Youth, in
particular, have a disturbingly high suicide rate. Suicide is the second leading cause of
death for young people between the ages of 10 and 24 years and accounted for 5,178
deaths in this age group in 2012. The most common methods used in suicides are
firearms (45%), suffocation (which may be in the form of hanging) (40%), and poisoning
(8%). However, more young people survive suicide attempts than actually die from the
attempt. A national survey of youth in both private and public schools, grades 9-12,
found that 16% of students reported considering suicide. Thirteen percent reported having
a plan for suicide, and 8% had a suicide attempt within the last 12 months preceding the
survey. Suicide is not a comfortable topic. We have found that the more we talk about
suicide, and research suicide, the more we can do to help prevent it. By opening up
conversations about suicide, we aid in the prevention process and keep more of our
young people alive.
