A new report for the Virginia Violent Death Reporting System: Women and Suicide in Virginia

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in the Virginia Department of Health has issued a new report from the Virginia Violent Death Reporting System: Women and Suicide in Virginia.  
This report explores characteristics of women’s suicide in Virginia for the ten year period between 2003 and 2012.  Among women, the greatest suicide risk it to white and middle aged women, a population with substance abuse and mental health problems who are likely to be receiving mental health treatment at the time of their suicide.  Women suicide decedents use poisons to end their lives in high proportions, often with the very drugs that were prescribed to address their mental health and medical concerns.  These data suggest needs related to health and mental health for women that move beyond medication to address underlying challenges that arise over the life course.
