Question description

The number of deaths officially designated as suicide among young adults (15-24 years of age) has increased considerably (see the “Suicide Prevention” article).  Interpret the available statistics and describe the influences of family, culture, and environment as it pertains to the data.  Be sure to distinguish between suicide attempts and deaths attributed to suicide, and to report gender differences. Your initial post should address the following:

  • Discuss whether the available statistics accurately represent the evidence (e.g., can these statistics underreport the actual rates?).  
  • Describe at least two potential causes of suicide among teens according to the scientific literature.
  • Examine at least one feasible solution to the issue of suicide and discuss its effectiveness.  
Your initial post must be at least 300 words and use a minimum of one scholarly source located on Google Scholar that is cited and referenced according to APA style,  to support your argument.
