Suicide deaths among incarcerated youth ‘two to three times higher’ than youths in general population

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth aged 10 to 24 years, and it accounts for more than 17 percent of all deaths in this age group. In 2016, an estimated 6,150 youths died by suicide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The overall rate of deaths by suicide in this age group is 9.6 per 100,000.

According to a U.S. Department of Justice survey, from 2000 to 2014, suicide rates were two to three times higher for youth in custody than those in the general population.

In a new study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP), researchers from Nationwide Children’s Hospital looked at circumstances preceding suicide to understand better why this disparity in suicide rate exists.

“We had some ideas going in about what might be associated with the difference in suicide rates,” says Donna Ruch, PhD, post-doctoral scientist in the Center for Suicide Prevention and Research in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s. “But by using the available data, we were able to uncover some surprising similarities and differences.”

The study used a nationally representative sample to examine characteristics and circumstances leading to suicide deaths among incarcerated youth. By mining the National Violent Death Reporting System data from 2003 to 2012, researchers compared data from youth aged 10 to 24 who died by suicide during incarceration to those who died by suicide in the general population.

MVNU invites community to hear stories of Tragedy into Triumph

Tragedy is “an event causing great suffering, destruction and distress.” Triumph is “joy or satisfaction resulting from a success or victory.” It is in the space between tragedy and triumph where many find their path and the voice to tell their story. Three such stories will come to life as Mount Vernon Nazarene University hosts Tragedy into Triumph, March 18-20.

Tragedy into Triumph, now in its 11th year, is a three-part experience that will connect the audience with three unique people who will share their personal stories of tragedy and how a common thread — God — helped them rise from the pits of despair to soar like an eagle.

“I am extremely excited about bringing Tragedy into Triumph to campus in collaboration with the North Central Ohio District,” said MVNU President Dr. Henry W. Spaulding II. “It will be an evangelistic event for our students and for the Mount Vernon community. The speakers will tell their story of how God turned their personal tragedy into triumph. This message is central to the mission of MVNU and we play all who attend will be blessed.”

Evangelistic husband and wife singer/songwriter duo, The Cashmans, are prepping for the long awaited national release of their CD,City of God, which is slated to impact retail March 1, 2019, from CLG Distribution, and will be available from major online retailers including iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.   

The project was produced by Grammy nominated, Dove Award winning Producer of the Year Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets, Chris August, Hawk Nelson) and Grammy and Dove nominated producer/mixer Barry Weeks (Kelly Clarkson, Backstreet Boys, Francesca Battistelli). City of God features songwriting collaborations with Eskelin and Grammy nominee Sarah Hart (Amy Grant, Celtic Woman, Matt Maher, Laura Story, Audrey Assad), among others.

City of God runs the stylistic gamut from CCM pop and Americana to heartfelt worship. The Cashmans imbue each song on the album with an intimate spiritual vitality that comes from spending time in the Word. But more than that, the project as a whole lays a firm foundation of worship and discipleship.
