CDC: Rising Suicide Rate Among Middle-Aged Men Indicates Need For More Prevention Efforts

On its website, NPR (9/10) reports in its “Health” blog that middle-aged men are the group “emerging” as the group most likely to commit suicide, surpassing older men. According to the article, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that of 39,518 suicides in 2011, people aged 45-64 years had the highest rate, and with men more likely to commit suicide than women, the CDC “points to the need for more suicide prevention efforts aimed at men.”
