New Report on Suicides
Nov. 7, 2016
A new report on Arizona suicides has been created. It’s called the Arizona Violent Death Reporting System, and the first report shows a high rate of suicide among older Arizonans. Seniors who are military veterans had the highest suicide rate. Divorced seniors and men over the age of 85 also had a higher risk of suicide. The report was prepared by the ASU Center for Violence Prevention and Community Safety. Vincent Webb, a researcher at the center and a professor of practice in the ASU School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, will tell us about the report.
