Teacher Insights

A new Vanderbilt-led study in the US says there has been a doubling in the number of school-age children and adolescents hospitalised for suicidal thoughts or attempts since 2008. The study, “Hospitalization for Suicide Ideation or Attempt”, examined trends in emergency room and “inpatient encounters for suicide ideation” and attempts in children of ages between 5-17 years at American children’s hospitals from 2008 to 2015. 

While there were 115,856 encounters for suicide ideation and attempts in emergency departments at 31 children’s hospitals, nearly two-thirds of those encounters were girls. Suicide is the third-leading cause of death among adolescents in the United States.
