Suicide rates have historically been low for the Latinx population, but even they are not immune to the increases in suicide being seen across the country. September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and the American Health Podcast is marking this important time with a series of podcasts focusing on research and evidence-based practices around suicide prevention. In Part 2, learn more about what we know, and what we don't know, about suicide among Latinx living in the United States, and hear about a school-based program in Baltimore that is supporting Latinx adolescents.
