Causes of Suicide
Suicide will rank as the 10th top cause of death within the U.S (see below chart). Worldwide, around 700,000 individuals take their own lives yearly. In specific populations, like young adults and adolescents, suicide constitutes one of the leading three death causes. The phenomenon is all the more compelling due to, in most cases, suicides being prevented. Thus, clinicians have to realize the suicide risk factors as one method of intervening within a self-destructive cycle and event.
