November 30, 2018



The suicide rate is the highest it’s been in decades, the latest warning sign of a worsening public health issue in America that needs far more attention.

According to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 47,000 Americans died by suicide in 2017. Put another way, the suicide rate was 14 people in every 100,000 — up 33 percent from 10.5 people per 100,000 in 1999.
