Editorial: Reducing adolescent suicide

Michael H. Bloch

Abstract

Adolescent suicide is currently the second leading cause of death in young people ages 10–19 (CDC, 2015). Current statistics suggest that in the US one in every seven youths has seriously considered or made a plan to commit suicide and one in every 13 youths has attempted suicide in the previous year (CDC, 2015). Suicide represents a – if not the – major public health problem in adolescents.
