Teen Suicide Warning Signs

Recognizing teen suicide warning signs

Suicide is alarmingly common. It is the eighth leading cause of death for all
people (accounting for about 1% of all deaths) and the third leading cause of
death for people aged 15 to 24 (following accidents and homicide). The vast
majority of suicides are related to emotional or psychiatric disorders,
including depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and others. Unsuccessful
suicide attempts also are common and outnumber actual suicides.
