Hi all

I didn't know where to post this, so if you want you can move this where it fits better ehhe

My sister is studying Medicine, and she's doing a project (not sure about what specifically), but she asked me to help her find websites that had work done on suicides, like stats, or anything really (as long as it's professional/scientific).

So, if you can help, that would be really great. (I'll try to do some search in search engines, but it's always difficult as hundreds of matches don't match at all with what we're looking for ehhe)

Plus, she's looking for a computer programme called "Health For All". She said it was about health, and I think it should be somewhere freeware, since as I gathered it's common to get it on the net. I did a few searches and nothing came up, so anyone who know something about that, get in touch too

Thanx a lot in advance for all the help !!

Hi Sall, have you checked out yet? It's the best search engine that's around and comes up with the best results.

hey Sallynha,

Well suicide is supposedly the 9th leading cause of deaths in the U.S and it accounts for almost 1.4% of deaths.
here are some statistics that i found

-6o% of suicides in men/woman involve a firearm

-less woman then men die by suicide

-white men commit almost 75% of all suicide

if you have aol here is the web site where i found this............ www.Statistics on Suicide: Online Psych

i hope this can help

Anyone have the stats for suicide of Japanese teens? I heard they have the greatest number out of all the "civilized" nations. Yet they have no firearms.
