Suicide Myth

18 Jun

Contrary to the popular belief that suicide spikes at Christmas, suicide rates in December and on Christmas specifically are the lowest in the year. However, rates do spike on New Years Day, peak in springtime, especially during the week after Easter, and are higher on Mondays and Tuesdays. (Rodriguez, T. The Christmas time suicide myth. Scientific American Mind, 2016, 27(6), p. 9)
