ANDY'S ANSWER: According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, nearly 300 youth (in Canada) per year die from committing suicide.
Boys are almost 4 times as likely to successfully commit suicide, and aboriginal or gay youth are at the greatest risk.
Almost everyone thinks about suicide at one time or another in their lives. This is not abnormal and the best thing for people to do is talk about it with their friends and family when they are feeling like that to help find solutions to whatever problems there are. Suicide is NEVER the right option.
