Suicide: A Growing Concern
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 1 in 5 youth aged 13-18 experiences a severe mental health disorder at some point during their lifetime. When ignored, these disorders can lead to life-threatening consequences. Depression is the leading cause of suicide, which is also the second leading cause of death for 11 to 17 year-olds. Youth Risk Behavior Survey data from 2017
indicates that 17% of youth considered suicide over the past year while 14% made a plan. Although the statistics are troubling, suicide is preventable. Schools and communities can work together to decrease stigma around mental health and provide support to youth who may be struggling.
