Suicide rates are highest in teens, young adults, and the elderly. White men over the age of 65 have the highest rate of suicide. Suicide risk also is higher in:

  • Older people who have lost a spouse through death or divorce

  • People who have attempted suicide in the past

  • People with a family history of suicide

  • People with a friend or co-worker who have killed themselves

  • People with a history of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse

  • People who are unmarried, unskilled, or unemployed

  • People with long-term pain or a disabling or terminal illness

  • People who are prone to violent or impulsive behavior

  • People who have recently been released from a psychiatric hospitalization (This often is a very frightening period of transition.)

  • People in certain professions, such as police officers and health care providers who work with terminally ill patients

  • People with substance abuse problems

Although women are three times as likely to attempt suicide, men are far more likely to complete the act.
