PsychBytes: Indiana Suicide

 

Indiana Suicide
 
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) tracks suicide statistics by state and updates them annually. The most recent data for Indiana indicate that suicide is the 11th leading cause of death and, on average, one person dies by suicide every nine hours in the state. More than twice as many people die by suicide in Indiana annually than by homicide; the total deaths to suicide reflect a total of 20,353 years of potential life lost (YPLL) before age 65.
