Video » Responding to the Alarm: Addressing Black Youth Suicide

In 2019, the Congressional Black Caucus convened an emergency Taskforce to examine Black Youth Suicide and Mental Health. The Taskforce released its report in December 2019, highlighting several recommendations for increased research, intervention development, and community engagement. In collaboration with the Office of Behavioral Health Equity at SAMHSA, this 90-minute interactive roundtable webinar featured co-authors of the Taskforce report, including the leader of the Taskforce, answering our most pressing questions about Black youth suicide.

CONCLUSIONS: The most common IED behavioural subtypes in these general population samples are associated with high rates of externalising disorders. This contrasts with the findings from clinical studies of IED, which observe a preponderance of internalising disorder comorbidity. This disparity in findings across population and clinical studies, together with the marked heterogeneity that characterises the diagnostic entity of IED, suggests that it is a disorder that requires much greater research.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that it is the effect that physical illness has on a person's life, in terms of disruption to daily activity, rather than the number of conditions that predicts suicide risk, especially at younger ages. Improved awareness and better management of mental wellbeing of individuals with physical health conditions may help to reduce suicides, especially in younger people.
