One of the most troubling suicide statistics is the increase in suicides seen among young people. In 2016, suicide became the second-leading cause of death for ages 10 to 34. 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 3, we'll talk more about this trend, and hear about a school-based training program that enables youth to develop coping and resilience skills that can help them avoid suicide.
