"THE SHARE OF HOUSEHOLDS that have guns is the single strongest predictor of how many young people commit suicide in a state, a new study shows."

"At the state level, the share of households that owned guns in 2004 was strongly linked to the youth suicide rate over the next decade, researchers found, even after controlling for other factors such as depression, suicide plans and previous suicide attempts."

"Overall, the youth suicide rate rose about 27 percent with each 10 percentage-point increase in household gun ownership, according to the study..."

I doubt that this finding will influence anyone, and that's very sad.

Physician burnout, depression, and even suicide, appears to be a significant and rising problem.

"Doctor burnout is becoming a huge problem, according to new research, which finds that nearly half of all physicians feel completely depleted, to the point where one in seven have contemplated suicide."

"The annual Medscape report, released Wednesday, finds that on average, 44 percent of the medical professionals your existence depends on report feeling stressed out to the point where they’ve considered leaving the field altogether."

"A higher percentage of these wiped-out life-savers are women, according to the survey of more than 15,000 doctors."
