Description

Suicide rates in Hispanic female adolescents are studied using a systematic approach. This study looks at the potential cultural and behavioral factors, signs leading up to a suicide attempt, and treatments for the population with the highest suicide rate out of any ethnic population. Peer reviewed articles are analyzed for recurring themes in the literature. With Hispanic females being 82% more likely than non-Hispanic White females and 46% more likely than non-Hispanic African American females to attempt suicide, this research explores data that can be used to help decrease the disparity between Hispanic female adolescents and their non-Hispanic counterparts.
