Suicide rate rises 139% for Native American women




(News)

According to a new CDC analysis, Native American suicide rates have risen faster than any other group: 139% for women and 71% for men since 1999. Experts believe that poverty, drug abuse, unemployment and lack of access to mental health care exist all contributing factors reported USA Today . In the US as a whole, suicide increased 33% over the same period. A 2018 CDC report found that the suicide rate of non-Hispanic Indians and Alaska aboriginals was more than 3.5 times higher than the incidence among races and ethnic groups with the lowest rates.

Moreover, according to a 201

6 National Institute of Justice report, nearly 84% of Native American and native women in Alaska are victims of violence. This includes 56% who have experienced sexual violence and about the same percentage who experienced physical violence by an intimate partner, according to USA Today . Research has shown that more than a third of raped women have suicidal thoughts and 13% have attempted suicide, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. "They get this historic trauma, and people can not solve it, it's internalized and passed on to future generations," said Karen Hearod, regional administrator at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services and member of the Oklahoma Choctaw Nation.
