Fact Sheet: Understanding and Preventing Suicide Attempts among Teenage Hispanic Girls

Fact Sheet

Since 1991, the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System has consistently shown that Latinas in American high schools think about, plan, and attempt suicide more than any other group of teenagers. Other research has shown that US-born Latinas are more likely to attempt than foreign-born Latinas and that even in the middle school years, around age 12, Hispanic girls have a higher rate of attempts than boys or girls of any ethnic or racial group.
