The US suicide rate increased 33 percent from 1999 through 2017, and it is now the second-leading cause of death among those aged ten to thirty-four. This book explores the many causes of the epidemic and looks at the human toll it is taking on the roughly 1.5 million people who lose a close friend or family member to suicide each year.
