According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It is the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-34, the fourth leading cause among people ages 35-44, and the fifth leading cause among people ages 45-54.

Some groups have higher suicide rates than others. Suicide rates vary by race/ethnicity, age, and other factors. The highest rates are among American Indian/Alaska Native and non-Hispanic white populations. Other Americans with higher-than-average rates of suicide are veterans, people who live in rural areas, and young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transexual.

Suicide and suicide attempts affect the health and well-being of friends, loved ones, co-workers, and the community. When people die by suicide, their surviving family and friends may experience shock, anger, guilt, symptoms of depression or anxiety, and may even experience thoughts of suicide themselves.
