Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Over 14% of high-school students have considered suicide, & about 7% have attempted it.
Bully victims are between 2-9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to Yale University.
A study in Britain found that at least 1/2 of suicides among young people are related to bullying.
10-14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above.
According to ABC News, nearly 30% of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, & 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying.
