Episode Description:

Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death among Americans, and the third leading cause of death among young people ages 15-24. More than 33,000 people take their own lives each year. But deaths are only part of the problem: nearly 400,000 are treated for self-inflicted wounds each year in emergency departments. And the implications and effects of taking one’s life go far beyond a single individual. What are the risk factors for suicide? What causes people, especially young people, to take such a step? Are there signs and symptoms that provide clues? How do health professionals recognize them? And what actions can be taken to address the issue?
