New Study on Youth Suicide-Urban vs Rural

posted on

JAMA Pediatrics released yesterday an article about youth suicides, comparing urban and rural settings. While Boise isn't considered rural, much of Idaho is. The study found that suicide rates for both males and females were almost double in rural settings, and that the rates of suicide by firearms were disproportionately higher in rural areas. 

If you know someone who is coping  with symptoms of depression, consider having a discussion about how you can reduce risk--keeping guns locked, getting them out of the house, etc.
