Suicide & “seniors”

Researching yesterday’s post on the shocking rise of suicides across the USA, was stunned that the National Institute of Mental Health’s (NIMH) recent report on the rising rate of suicide in the USA didn’t include an age range older than 55-64.  Still astonished.  And horrified.

A smattering of articles discussing the rise of suicide among “seniors” (especially men):
