Suicide Statistics

The Need for Suicide Prevention and Intervention Services

  • Nationally among children aged 10 to 14, death by suicide is now more common than death from traffic accidents (National Center for Health Statistics, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2015).
  • New Mexico ranks FIRST in the nation for youth suicide ages 15-19. (CDC Wonder, 2017)
  • 40% of Santa Fe County high school students felt persistent sadness or hopelessness; 17% seriously considered suicide; and almost 10% attempted suicide in the past twelve months (NM Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey 2017).
  • 40% of LGBTQ youth (including more than half of transgender and non-binary youth) report seriously considering suicide in the past 12 months (National Survey on LGBTQ Mental Health, Trevor Project, 2019).

These statistics do not reveal the true extent of the problem: the devastating loss of promise and hopefulness in a young life that is impossible to quantify. Unfortunately, suicide is a largely ignored issue until it is brought to the forefront by the incomprehensible death of a child.

If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

You can also text HELP to 741-741 for free, 24-hour support from the Crisis Text Line.
