US Suicide Statistics

Suicide is a major national public health issue in the United States. The U.S. has one of the highest suicide rates among wealthy nations. According to the CDC, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for all ages. Suicide is a major contributor to premature mortality as it ranks as the second leading cause of death for ages 10–34 and the fourth leading cause for ages 35–54.

US Suicide Statistics

The COVID-19 crisis only exacerbates concern regarding overall mental health wellness in the U.S. Commenting in July of this year on a spike in suicides, CDC Director Robert Redfield noted: “The pandemic will cause distress and leave many people vulnerable to mental health problems and suicidal behavior. Mental health consequences are likely to be present for longer and peak later than the actual pandemic." 

Native American Statistics

The U.S. suicide rate is up 33 percent since 1999, but for Native American women and men, the increase is 139 percent and 71 percent, respectively, according to an analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.

Native American Statistics

Native communities experience higher rates of suicide compared to all other racial and ethnic groups in the U.S., with suicide being the eighth leading cause of death for Native Americans across all ages. For Native youth ages 10 to 24, suicide is the second leading cause of death; and the Native youth suicide rate is 2.5 times higher than the overall national average, making these rates the highest across all ethnic and racial groups.
