The rising suicide rate over the last 20 years has been called an epidemic. In the eighteen years between 199 and 2017, the age adjusted suicide rate in the U.S. rose 33% , according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The rates for girls and women are approaching those for boys and men in every age group. ( Wallis, C. The other U.S. epidemic. Scientific American, 2020, August, p. 23)
