Reddit "Ask Me Anything"

Suicide and suicide prevention have been in the news a lot in recent years. The rates in the US are going up, while suicide rates globally are going down - but why? Celebrities globally are dying from suicide, it's the 2nd leading cause of death in US youth, and is affecting every demographic more and more. Over a million people in the US attempt suicide every year and a vast majority survive - why do some people live and others die? We're suicidologists from the American Association of Suicidology (suicidology.org), the world's largest membership-based suicide prevention organization and we want to tell you all about the field. Over the last several years, we've been working with technology companies to help predict suicide risk, video game organizations to lessen risk and help save lives, tabletop gaming groups, the media, journalists, and entertainment companies. We've seen it all, heard it all, know a lot about what we know and what we don't know about suicide and why it all matters. Ask us anything!
