The 14-year-old girl is feared to have leapt to her death from a sixth floor apartment block after cyberbullies on askfm told her: “kill youself. You’re a dog.”
Suicide is the third-leading cause of death for 15- to 24-year-olds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It's also believed that at least 25 attempts are made for every completed teen suicide.
Adolescence is also a time of sexual identity and relationships and a need for independence that often conflicts with the rules and expectations set by others.
The risk of suicide increases dramatically when kids and teens have access to firearms at home, and nearly 60% of all suicides in the United States are committed with a gun. Overdose using over-the-counter, prescription, and non-prescription medicine is also a very common method for both attempting and completing suicide.
Suicide rates differ between boys and girls. Girls think about and attempt suicide about twice as often as boys, and tend to attempt suicide by overdosing on drugs or cutting themselves. Yet boys die by suicide about four times as often girls, perhaps because they tend to use more lethal methods, such as firearms, hanging, or jumping from heights.
