Study looks at suicide trends in children, adolescents
Elementary-age children who died by suicide were more likely to have attention-deficit disorder with or without hyperactivity, while young adolescents who committed suicide were more likely to have depression or dysthymia, according to a study in Pediatrics. The findings, based on 2003 to 2012 National Violent Death Reporting System data involving youths ages 5 to 14 in 17 states, also showed a higher likelihood of relationship problems with family or friends among those ages 5 to 11, while 12- to 14-year-olds were more likely to have romantic relationship problems.
