High Risk Groups

In the past, certain groups that were often treated unfairly, faced tough life situations, and didn’t have much access to help tended to have more suicides.

Black Americans used to have lower suicide rates compared to everyone else. But recently, more Black people, especially young folks, have been taking their own lives. Thankfully, this issue is getting more attention now. A group called the Emergency Taskforce on Black Youth Suicide and Mental Health, started by the Congressional Black Caucus in 2019, has made recommendations to deal with this problem. They’re asking for more money to study this issue from the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Mental Health.

Some indigenous communities, like Alaskan Natives, also have higher suicide rates. This is because of a long history of pain, poverty, and people looking down on them. The best way to help is to create programs that understand their culture. The Indian Country Child Trauma Center is one program that helps tribal communities deal with trauma.

Young people who are LGBTQI+ also have a higher chance of suicide. But it’s good to know that states that allow same-sex marriage have seen fewer young people taking their own lives, especially those who identify as “sexual minorities.” So, laws supporting the LGBTQI community are helping to prevent youth suicides.
