Suicide is defined as death caused by self-directed injurious behavior with intent to die as a result of the behavior. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in 2018:

  • Suicide was the tenth leading cause of death overall in the United States, claiming the lives of over 48,000 people.
  • Suicide was the second leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 10 and 34, and the fourth leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 35 and 54.
  • There were more than two and a half times as many suicides (48,344) in the United States as there were homicides (18,830).
