Elder Suicide
Suicide rates in America’s elderly population have risen steadily compared to other demographics. Alarmingly, as Baby Boomers will soon constitute a larger portion of the senior population, elder suicide rates are projected to increase further. The signs and symptoms of suicide in the elderly are understandable and treatable. Counseling professionals who are more aware and confident with this underserved population can offer improved services to seniors in varying clinical settings.
