SUICIDE RATE RISING AMONG BLACK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN

Feeling Rebloggy
From 2015

Black people have often fared poorly in their interactions with the mental health care system. For example, they are nearly half as likely as whites to receive treatment for diagnosed mental health disorders of comparable severity. When black patients do receive treatment, it is far more likely to occur in an emergency room or psychiatric hospital than it is for whites, and less likely to be in the calmer office-based setting, where longer-term treatment can take place.
It’s difficult to say for certain why more black children are committing suicide, but researchers identified exposure to violence and traumatic stress among black children, as well as aggressive school discipline and a higher likelihood of early onset puberty, as possible risk factors...
The trends in the study were driven by boys. Across all age groups, women are less likely to die by suicide, even though suicide attempts are three times higher among women than men.
