Adolescent suicides rising at alarming rate

Adolescent suicides rising at alarming rate | Everything Is Broken | Scoop.it
Children and teens suffering from a variety of mental health issues are increasingly resorting to suicide, a federal report shows. [...] while there has been an increase in mental health services and a more open dialogue about suicide prevention in recent years, today’s school-age children are exposed to a myriad of risk factors. On top of traumatic experiences children may bring from home, students face additional challenges in school, including “a relentless pace of learning” and the constant pressure for good grades and getting into an elite college, Piliouras said. The agency found that suicide is now the leading cause of death among children 10 to 14 years old, surpassing motor vehicle crashes for the first time. [...] the suicide rate for that age group doubled from 2007 to 2014, according to the CDC. More than half of the students in the city’s public schools are considered economically disadvantaged and about 16 percent are English language learners, according to the most recent enrollment figures. Krasner, who’s also an assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine, worries that access to such care may become even more difficult if President-elect Donald Trump succeeds in repealing the Affordable Care Act, which he promised to do during his campaign.
