My article, Understanding the Causes of Teenage Suicide has been published by the Learning Counsel.

  • Suicide is now the second leading cause of death among 10-24 year olds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  • In the next 24 hours, 1,439 will attempt suicide.
  • As many as 1/2 millions adolescents made a serious, yet unsuccessful attempt to kill themselves last year.
  • The fastest-growing group completing suicide is children between the ages of 10 and 14.
  • This is the first of two articles to be published by the Learning Counsel on the topic.
