A Look at Suicide Statistics

The Eleventh Leading Cause of Domestic Death

Join Our Mailing List

One million people commit suicide every year. Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the US.

Japan

Japan also has one of the highest suicide rates in the industrialized world and these suicides are mostly attributed to unemployment and depression. It is the leading cause of death for Japanese people under 30; many choose to jump in front of trains as a suicide method. When suicide hotlines were set up in Japan, 1300 calls a week were received.

Assessment

This is a staggering number in Japan, and it signifies the importance of obtaining a job for people, since unemployment and depression are popular reasons for suicide.

  6. OH Podiatrist is Apparent Suicide Victim

    The death of a man whose body was found in his car Friday morning behind the former Big Lots building was caused by what is believed to have been a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Huron County coroner.

    The body of Dr. James Revelas, a Norwalk podiatrist, was discovered in a parked car by a man who was doing work at the site. The body had a gunshot wound to the chest.

    Coroner Dr. Jeffrey Harwood said there were no signs of foul play and that all the evidence suggests Revelas’ death was a suicide. Revelas was a virtuoso violinist and was a former member of the Youngstown Symphony, the Bellevue Symphony, and the Heidelberg Orchestra.

  10. Health Plans Must Cover Suicide Related Costs But Many Refuse

    Dealing with the aftermath of a suicide or attempted suicide is stressful enough. But, some health plans make a harrowing experience worse by refusing to cover medical costs for injuries that are related to suicide-even though experts say that in many cases such exclusions aren’t permitted under federal law.
