Almost half of all Americans will develop some form of mental illness during their lifetime. Yet studies show that minorities are more likely to go untreated. This could be the result of the stigma often attached to mental illness by people of color, or the notion that minorities don’t die by suicide. At any rate, the end result is, an increase in suicide rates among communities of color, and marginalized groups such as the LGBTQ community. It’s important that we understand that suicide can be a concern for any individual, regardless of race or ethnicity. In short, suicide doesn’t discriminate.
