This quote is from the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention:
90% of people who die by suicide have a diagnosable and treatable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death.
Anyone know what the suicide rate was back in the 60's, 70's or 80's?
I didn't know anyone during my high school/college years that committed suicide. My DD (17) knows three different people who took their own lives. So sad.
I believe it stems from mental illness. I am just wondering how those with mental illness dealt with it "back in the day." Maybe the suicide rate was just as high and I was just lucky enough to have friends that didn't go down that road.
