Youth suicide is a crisis and drastic preventable measures are needed, according to experts. A CDC report shows that the rate of suicide among 10-24-year-olds has increased by 56% from 2007 to 2017, and since 2011 there has been a 400% increase in suicide attempts nationally. Research found a rise in attempts especially during school months, Though no root cause has been identified, many blame social media and mobile devices, which keep young people constantly exposed to potential negativity.
