Age differences

Suicidal behaviour can occur at any age. The frequency of suicidal behaviour escalates steeply from childhood through middle to late adolescence and into adulthood. Suicide ranks as the second cause of death worldwide among 15-19 year olds, with at least 100,000 adolescents dying by suicide every year. Suicide rates are high among middle-aged and older adults and highest among those aged 75 and older. Elderly people are likely to have higher suicidal intent and use more lethal methods than younger people, and they are less likely to survive the physical consequences of an attempt.
