More Children Ending Up In Hospitals For Suicidal Tendencies

Why Suicide Attempts Are More in Adolescents Suicide

It's not clear what has contributed to the increase, but the study noted the 2008 financial crisis may be one factor among others. The study observed drifts in an emergency room and inpatient experiences for suicide ideation and endeavors in kids ages 5-17 years at USA kids' healing facilities from 2008 to 2015.

Based on this analysis, the researchers tried to look into the overall number of suicidal thoughts and attempts in American children who were admitted to hospitals across the United States between 2008 and 2015.

Increases were seen across all ages, but differed across certain groups.

They cited research, including a report from the U.S. The database showed that more than 115,800 suicide attempts or ideations occurred during the seven-year study period.

"We noticed that anecdotally here in our own hospital over the last several years, we would have a fairly quiet summer as far as kids coming in for mental health issues, then right about four to six weeks after school started, we became inundated", he said, adding that the figures were consistent across all regions of the country.

"Although children's hospitals serve as regional referral centers of expertise for many pediatric physical health conditions, little is known about their role in providing [suicidal ideation] and [suicide attempts] care at the time when rates of youth suicides appear to be increasing", the authors wrote. Around 37 percent of the encounters were children between 12 and 14 years old, and almost 13 percent were between the ages of 5 and 11 years old. Summer months only accounted for 18.5% (95%CI: 5.6-6.1) of total annual SI and SA encounters, whereas spring and fall months accounted for 28.3% and 28.1% of encounters, respectively.

The highest increase has been observed in adolescent girls and among teenagers between the ages of 15 and 17 years old. They also identified the data month-by-month and found seasonal trends in the encounters. They suggested "age- and sex-specific approaches to suicide screening and prevention". "We were also surprised to see the strong temporal association with the academic calendar (hospitalization rates were twice as high in October than July, for instance)".

Gregory Plemmons, the lead author of the study and a researcher as well as paediatrician at the Nashvilles' Vanderbilt University said that the result of the study confirmed what all he had been seeing at the hospitals.
