Description: In 2018, suicide was the second leading cause of death for ages 10-34. Eighty percent of these deaths were committed by males. And while more white teenagers commit suicide than AA youth, more AA youth attempt to commit suicide than their white counterparts. Suicide among African Americans has to be acknowledged by the US Surgeon General as a growing crisis, to receive additional research and funding.
