What You Need to Know About Youth Suicide

Many teenagers and young adults often think about suicide. About 11% of young adults between 18 and 25 admit they’ve seriously considered it, and around 1-2% say they’ve actually tried to end their own lives in the past year. High school students have even higher numbers, with nearly 20% thinking about suicide seriously, and 9% attempting it.

In 2019, the suicide rate for young adults aged 15-24 in the United States was about 14 out of every 100,000 people. That means a little more than one out of every 10,000 young people in this age group took their own lives. While these statistics are concerning, there’s some hope. If we can identify and support young people dealing with mental health issues, including thinking about suicide, we can help prevent these tragic events.

There’s a big difference between the number of young people thinking about suicide (about 1 in 10) and those who actually go through with it (1 in 10,000). In other words, for every young person lost to suicide, there are 1,000 individuals struggling with the idea of ending their lives. This means we have 1,000 chances to offer understanding and support to those facing these challenges.
