The first part, i was amazed. Im glad there are no children committing suicide. Only 10 kids from 1999-2005. I am amazed. That is 10 too many. People dont think that children an commit suicide but they can. They are important too. Councilors can help them too.
Suicides among children as young as Aquan are extremely rare. There were on average just 10 U.S. suicides among 10-year-olds a year between 1999 and 2005, according to statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. By comparison, there were an average of about 75 suicides a year among 13-year-olds, and about 250 a year among 16-year-olds.
