This is such a sad topic, and shows just how much women are impacted by stress today.
A report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that the suicide rate among women aged 35 to 64 years increased… The findings were published May 2 in the CDC’s journal, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
The report’s key findings include the following:
- Suicide rates among those aged 35 to 64 years increased 32% for women.
- The greatest increases in suicide rates were among people aged 50 to 54 years (48%) and 55 to 59 years (49%).
“These results highlight the need for suicide prevention strategies that address mental health issues and the stresses and challenges that middle-aged adults are likely to face. Such stresses include economic challenges, dual caregiver responsibilities, and potential health problems,” the authors write.
