Current Youth Suicide Trends and the Critical Role Schools Play in Awareness and Prevention Efforts
The issue of youth suicide is not only crucial, but dire. And unfortunately, time is of the essence, because children’s lives literally depend upon it.
The suicide rate for Americans ages 10 to 24 has gone up a staggering 60% since 2007, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and, as astounding as it may seem, suicide remains the second leading cause of death for children ages 10 and up, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
With students going back to school after a global pandemic and constantly evolving triggers and outside influences growing, schools must be proactive when it comes to developing effective suicide awareness programs and prevention techniques.
