US Suicide Deaths Reached A Record High

via NBC News

The United States saw a record number of suicides in 2022, with at least 49,449 lives lost to intentional self-harm.

Men were four times more likely than women to die by suicide, and rates were highest among senior men.

While suicide rates have been rising for decades, there were signs of improvement in rates among children and teens in 2022. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

However, rates for all other age groups increased, with American Indian and White people having higher than average rates.

Gun suicides reached a record high in 2022, with more than half of suicides involving firearms.

“Gun suicides continue to take the lives of elderly white men at high rates and increasingly, the lives of Black teens,” said Ari Davis.

“If we can put time and space between this lethal method and someone in crisis, it can save lives,” he added.

The launch of the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline aimed to provide support, but survey data suggests that many adults in the US are unaware of this resource.
