Blog 6: Suicide Rates in Missouri (2015)

  1. The article I have chosen expressed the facts and figures in relation to suicide within the state of Missouri for the year of 2015. I chose this compliance of information based on the astronomically high rates we have within the state and because it is the 10th leading cause of death within the state.
  1. The information was collected by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and presented under the Missouri Suicide Prevention Project (MSPP). The MSPP is under the Department of Mental Health, Division of Comprehensive Psychiatric Services.
  1. Based on the increase in medication and technological advancement, why do we continually see a rise in suicide rates? Is there a stronger demographic of male or female who have higher numbers?
