The DATA


EVERYONE should be SHOCKED at the general recent rise in suicide across the nation, but especially at a 56% rise in adolescent suicide since 2007. The links below take you to statistics demonstrating the rise in suicide in general and for youth. Some states such as Utah had 140% rise over the past four years. This is too significant to "blame" on "high altitude" as some have suggested.

While there is significant data demonstrating the high risks faced by LGBTQIA youth, the reality is likely much worse because schools, in general, are lacking qualitative surveying including this aspect of student sense of safety and well being.  Further, most death certificates don't track gender identity or sexual orientation information. Below are a collection of links to important data, but it still incomplete. If you know of sites which should be included, please send me an email with a link! We are building, sharing and connecting information together. Thank you!
