Suicide rates have fallen among young white children in the U.S. but they've gone up among black youngsters, according to a new study of suicides in kids under age 12. Jeffrey A. Bridge of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio told Reuters Health Suicide is rare among these very young children, but it does happen . The difference in suicide rates between young children of the two races is masked by the overall suicide rate for all young children, which remained stable during those 20 years.
