New Program to Prevent Suicide Among Latinas

El Diario/La Prensa, news report, Posted: Nov 27, 2008

NEW YORK The Latina Adolescent Suicide Prevention Campaign was launched this week at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., to help inform young Latinas about how to seek help and prevent suicide in their community, reports El Diario/La Prensa. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among young people between 10 and 24 years of age in the United States. Research shows that adolescent Latinas have the highest rate of attempted suicides among groups of teenagers in the nation: 21 percent of Hispanic women between 14 and 17 years have attempted suicide, compared with 10.8 percent of African American and 10.4 percent of white non - Hispanics the same age. The campaign is designed primarily to reach Latina teenagers between 13 and 17 years old, and will include print ads, fliers, posters and radio ads.
