Suicide is among the top three causes of death for young people ages 15 to 24. More broadly, it is a national epidemic touching people of all ages--from those who consider and attempt suicide to those left behind after a loved one commits suicide. Author Connie Goldsmith examines the risk factors for suicide (including mental illness, substance abuse, domestic abuse, and bullying) as well as preventive measures that can help people control and mitigate those risk factors.
