The rate of suicide in young adults has more than doubled since 1950.
This paper presents some explanations for this rise and analyzes the diagnoses and population groups whose high rates of suicide contribute most of this increase.
The factors leading to suicide are presented for each group, and preventative interventions are developed from the analyses.
Groups that can be readily affected by suicide reduction measures are discussed, and methods for reducing their suicide rates are proposed.
