U.S. suicide rates rose in 2021, reversing 2 years of decline


Recommended Posts

The number of suicides increased to 47,646 in 2021, up from 45,979 in 2020, according to researchers at the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics.

As a result, the U.S. suicide rate also increased to 14 suicides for every 100,000 people, up from 13.5 per 100,000 in 2020, according to data published in the CDC's Vital Statistics Rapid Release.

However, the numbers from 2021 remain lower than the peak set in 2018, suicide prevention experts noted.

It's sad. I wonder did covid - 19 isolation play a role?

Almost certainly.  All of these rolling consequences have been a result of the actions taken to combat that pandemic.  They damned near burned everything down and the trail of deaths and destruction they've precipitated isn't at peak, yet.
