    Youth Suicide Rate Increased 56% in Decade, CDC Says

    https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/1...-says?sbsrc=md

    Suicide and homicide rates have increased in recent years among young people in the U.S., according to a new federal report. From a report:

    The suicide rate among people ages 10 to 24 years old climbed 56% between 2007 and 2017, according to the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The rate of homicide deaths decreased by 23% from 2007 to 2014 but then increased by 18% through 2017. Violent death, including homicide and suicide, is a major cause of premature death for the age group. Around 2010, the death rate of suicides among adolescents and young adults surpassed the rate of homicide deaths, according to the report. "The chances of a person in this age range dying by suicide is greater than homicide, when it used to be the reverse," said Sally Curtin, a statistician at the CDC and an author of the report. "When a leading cause of death among our youth is increasing, it behooves all of us to pay attention and figure out what's going on."

    Some mental-health experts suggest that social-media use among teens might be fueling the increase in mental-health conditions and leading to greater suicide risk, and some early studies have linked smartphone use to anxiety, depression and sleep deprivation among adolescents. The recent visibility of suicide in the media and online might also increase suicide death rates, experts say.

    Yeah that's because a lot of kids are on psychotropic drugs!! Most all those drugs have warnings on them like this...

    United States, March 22, 2004: The FDA asked drug companies to add new warnings on 10 widely used antidepressants. It said patients given these drugs should be closely monitored for worsening depression or suicidality, especially when the patient first begins taking the drugs or changes doses. At the time the FDA had not concluded whether the worsening of symptoms was due to the underlying disorder or the drug. It also said, “Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, impulsivity, akathisia [severe restlessness], hypomania [abnormal excitement, mild mania] and mania, have been reported in adult and pediatric patients being treated with antidepressants… .”

    While higher, the rate itself is not that high- 17 in 100,000 or just over 6,000 a year.

    Are you trying to say you find these numbers insignificant? Each of those numbers is a person--a young person.

    How long does the rate increase by 56% a decade before it signifies to you?

    Yup, exactly.

    What a surprise:

    1 - Tell kids that they are special, they can do anything, give them awards for participation.

    2 - Take away from boys any sort of "rite of passage".

    3 - Cage them in a net of safety, rules, surveillance and control.

    4 - Tell them the world is going to end because of breathing and cow farts.

    5 - Pump them full of anti - depressants with suicide as a known and documented side effect.

    6 - When all that fails to cure their depression, tell them the answer is to mutilate their genitals.
