According to a new study, teens and young adults who come from a troubled background may be at a great risk of committing suicide later in life. The study found that children exposed to suicide in the family, parental mental health disorders and substantial parental criminal behavior had the highest suicide rates. Study author Charlotte Bjorkenstam from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden said the findings “emphasize the importance of understanding the social mechanisms of suicide and the need for effective interventions early in life aimed at alleviating the suicide risk in disadvantaged children.” However, it’s important to note that the study does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship. The overall risk of suicide in young people is considerably low, and most children who experience such adversities won’t go on to take their own lives.
