Young Americans Lead Rise In Attempting Suicide

Although older people have the highest suicide rates in the United States, a new study finds suicide attempts by younger adults, especially ones with mental disorders and less education, are now on the rise. After adjusting statistics by various factors, the investigators found the risk of suicide attempts was "significantly higher" among those aged 21 to 34 compared to people 65 and up. According to the report, people with a history of violence were also more likely to try to kill themselves. Prior suicide attempts also boosted the risk of suicide attempts.
