Suicide attempts among young adults between the ages of 21 and 34 have risen alarmingly, a new study warns.
Among people over 21, the rate of suicide attempts rose 21.5 percent, increasing ‘significantly’ from 2004 to 2013.
Suicide attempts are up across the board in the US, but young adults with lower education levels are at especially high risk.
Deaths from suicide are on the rise as well, but not as dramatically as suicide attempts.
Researchers from Columbia University think that economic and career instability may be leading more young adults to attempt suicide than ever.
