Suicide in Rural Areas - FORHP Special Announcement

Suicide Rates for Rural Counties Consistently Higher Than Urban Counties...

Suicide is one of the top ten leading causes of death in the United States, and suicide occurs at a much higher rate in rural areas than urban. While this is a documented rural-urban disparity, the new CDC report examines the annual changes in the rates of suicide by a number of additional variables including sex, race/ethnicity, age group, and mechanism of death.
