Factors contributing to child/adolescent suicides

An article published in the recent journal Pediatrics examined common factors in child and adolescent suicides in a number of states over a 10 year period.  ADHD was often found in both age groups, as well as family/social difficulties.  The message from the study is to educate parents, physicians, and teachers in the warning signs of suicide in order to intervene early and hopefully prevent this early loss of life.
