Research Suggests Suicides By Racial and Ethnic Minorities are Undercounted

Editor’s note: If you are struggling with suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or the Multnomah County Crisis Line at (503) 988-4888. Help is also available via chat at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat/ or by text at 741741.

As a sociologist and criminologist, I often do community outreach on mental health prevention. I urge organizations and programs to avoid “one size fits all” approaches. There are many ways that mental health issues can impact individuals, depending upon race and ethnicity, gender identity, sexual identity, religion and more.
