Youth suicide: Will we let the second leading cause of death become the first?
Report from Ontario Psychiatrists calls for leadership on youth suicide prevention
Toronto – September 15, 2016 – Suicide is the leading cause of death among Canadians age 15 to 34, after car accidents, says an alarming new report from Ontario Psychiatrists. But unlike car accidents, the report identifies that the number of suicides across Canada has remained unchanged for more than four decades, with 70 per cent of mental health issues starting in childhood and suicide accounting for 24 per cent of all deaths among young people. Ontario Psychiatrists are calling for immediate action, releasing a new report that makes strong recommendations and calls on government to mend system gaps and reduce the risk of suicide among Canadian youth.
